Identity Crisis: Sorting Out Identically Named Individuals in your Family History
High Point Public Library, Morgan Room

The name is the same, but are they the same person? That is a question that all genealogists tackle regularly. What if there are several people with the exact same first and last names living in a particular neighborhood? How do I tell which one is mine? One individual with a certain name lived in County A in the 1760s. A person with the same name lived in County B in 1780s. Is it the same person moving from one county to another, or are they two separate people? Larry Cates of the HRC will tackle this challenging issue, the problem of identity, and explain why it is important to subject theories of identity to rigorous testing before drawing any genealogical conclusions.
Wednesday, March 21, 10 a.m.
