The Southbury Public Library will host genealogist Toni McKeen for a presentation on how to locate female relatives on Friday, May 11 at 2pm in the Kingsley room.
Locating our females relatives in our culture can present special problems when a woman’s maiden name disappears under her husband’s surname. Finding that key information can be a challenge, but careful, methodical research can result in successful results. Toni will discuss many possible sources and databases where clues may be located about these elusive females.
Toni is a member of several genealogical organizations and she teaches several levels of genealogy courses in her hometown of Ridgefield, CT. Over the years she taught more than 2,400 hours of genealogy courses at Founders Hall in Ridgefield, as well as in Redding, CT and in Bronxville and Mamaroneck, NY. She continues to study her own extensive Italian family’s genealogy, her husband’s Irish family, and son in law’s German family after almost three decades of genealogical research. Toni is also a popular lecturer at various genealogy societies in the New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Boston, and Long Island areas.
