Description Technical Specs
Why limit yourself to simply expanding your family tree by looking for names, dates and places? Beyond the questions Who?, When?, and Where?, it is possible to explore the far more interesting questions, WHY? and HOW? Why did our ancestors behave the way they did? How did they have an impact on us? In this presentation Ron Arons provides two related examples from his own research experience on how this process works. The unexpected benefit of this approach is that it allowed Ron to push back his family tree four more generations and find many living relatives he never knew beforehand.

This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on June 13, 2012. 1 hour 30 minutes, plus 1 page of handouts.

Viewers' comments:
  • So clearly presented and the six point diagram is now going to be one of my tools to organize my "life story".
  • Enjoyed this webinar very much. Gives me the inspiration to look further into my ancestors lives!
  • Entertaining case study.
  • Excellent presentation - showing that genealogy is so much more than names and dates. That we are giving our ancestors their life story for ourselves and others while understanding ourselves better.
  • Excellent session, it's opened up many more avenues for me to check out. Many thanks.
  • Fascinating look at fleshing out a very challenging character! Given how many names, wives and birthplaces Isaac had, it's amazing Ron was able to put things together!
  • Fascinating presentation; good mix of actual facts and methodology.
  • Great presenter--I'd like to hear more about how he presented this--telling the story so we hung on the edge of our seats...that's how I'd like to write up family stories!
  • I am trying to write a story about my great grandmother in France.  I am making it a historical Fiction, but along the way, I am finding more and more about her and her family.  I love the tenacity of purpose shown by the presenter. I hope to find records of my grandfather in a mental institution, as soon as I become brave enough to request them. This webinar gives me hope.
  • I learned so much and laughed so much, too.
  • I was enthralled with every twist and turn which Ron presented on this part of his family.  Would make a nice chapter or two to great genealogy mystery novel.
  • Love the folksy presentation but appreciate the really helpful info on helpful methods. A great "brickwall" buster.
  • Mr. Aron's presentation was extraordinarily helpful in formulation a plan for researching my enate great grandfather.
  • Ron Arons made and excellent and entertaining presentation on the case study of his black sheep great grandfather. A difficult man to research with all the false information. I liked his use of the Hub and Spokes Chart to follow for researching, and using the spread sheets to keep track of documents.
  • Ron's sense of humor was as great as his info.
  • What an entertaining person Ron is.  This was informative and hilarious and everything all in one!  I enjoyed it tremendously/
