Southern Indiana Genealogical Society To Discuss Divorce Records, Insanity and Criminal Records
Cases of divorce, suicide, illegitimacy, insanity, and criminal activity do shake the ancestral tree! Genealogist Susan Covey will present a program, "Dancing With Your Family Skeletons," at the Southern Indiana Genealogical Society's meeting on Thursday, November 7. She will outline methods for researching black sheep ancestors by using common and unique sources. Ms. Covey is the SIGS publicity chair and a recipient of the Floyd County, Indiana "Gold Leaf Volunteer Award" for her work in local genealogy. The meeting is at 7 pm in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Library (180 W. Spring St., New Albany, Indiana).
