My Surprise Family: Find Your Ancestry Story
Speaker: Margaret M. Nicholson, PhD
January 21, 2020, 7pm
 
Margaret Nicholson got involved in her family's genealogy through an aunt who talked her into sending her DNA to Ancestry.com. She was surprised to find a close, but unknown, DNA match. To learn how this person was related to her, she had to become proficient at using the Ancestry.com website.
 
Margaret will take you through the process of how she discovered that the daddy who raised her was not her birth father. Along the way, you will see how family trees, historical records, and DNA matches played a role in her story. The presentation is structured to appeal to both novice and experienced users of genealogy/DNA online sites.
 
The speaker's book My Surprise Family: Find Your Ancestry Story is as a mystery, a memoir, and a manual. Copies will be available at the meeting for purchase and signing.
 
About the Speaker:
 
Dr. Nicholson moved to St Augustine, FL from Harrisburg, PA, sixteen years ago, a move prompted by the birth of her grandson. Previously she lived and worked in Pennsylvania, the Netherlands, and briefly in Germany. She became a wife and mother at eighteen, began college at twenty-eight, and earned her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in middle age.
 
After retiring from university teaching, Margaret eagerly switched from academic writing to personal subjects. Creating a family tree for grandson Noah sparked her interest in genealogy. She says, "He's sixteen and ignores me if I utter the words, 'first cousin once removed,' but he will look at the ship manifest showing the arrival of his maternal great-grandfather from Italy."
