Forensic genealogists are called upon when genealogical research is needed that has legal implications, from finding people named in wills and birth families to locating family members for the military and even working with the police to solve crimes. Forensic genealogists solve such family-tree puzzles using birth certificates, newspapers, even DNA.

Join us September 26 at 7 p.m. as a professional forensic genealogist, Katharine O'Connell of Cleveland-based North Coast Genealogy, discusses how people-locating skills are used to find missing and unknown people, shares a sample case and answers your questions. Read more about the session in the AARP Bulletin.

This is the third webinar in our genealogy series, be sure to watch:

In addition, AARP Ohio will provide resources to help you with the joy and responsibilities of caring for your older adult family members.
