Accolades for Rebecca Koford, CG and “Are You My Grandpa? Men of the Same Name”

Posted by: Eileen A. Souza

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending Rebecca Koford’s webinar “Are You My Grandpa? Men of the Same Name” hosted and sponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG).

Rebecca reviews tactics for sorting our ancestors from other men or women of the same name in the same general time period and location. Several case studies show how these methods were effective. She presents a difficult subject in both a systematized and thought-provoking style. This is absolutely one of the best webinars I have attended in a long time.

If you get a chance to attend this lecture, I highly recommend it. Those of you who subscribe to the Legacy webinar series can find it in the webinar library here. Right now, it is free until March 31, 2017.

Rebecca Whitman Koford holds a Certified Genealogist® credential. Her focus is in American research with special emphasis in Maryland. She has spoken for the National Genealogical Society Conference, Maryland State Archives, and for groups in Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., and Delaware. She is a board member of the Maryland Genealogical Society and volunteers at the Family History Center in Frederick, Maryland. She has published articles in the NGS Magazine and the Maryland Genealogical Society Journal.
