Steven Waltz Morrison:  "ASSEMBLING YOUR PROOF – Hunting for High Quality Resources"

You looked and found more than you expected! Now you have multiple dates for the same event. What should you use? Which is more reliable? How do you decide? Learn how to handle multiple conflicting sources from family traditions to hatched, matched and dispatched records.

Steven Waltz Morrison is President of the Puget Sound chapter of Association of Professional Genealogists. He is a past president of Olympia Genealogical Society. He holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from The Evergreen State College where he taught for seven years. Steven’s advanced training includes twelve genealogical institutes.

He has presented at more than two dozen genealogical seminars and conferences through-out the Northwest and local society meetings. Steven was invited to speak at the Family History and Genealogical Conference in Provo, Utah; the Ulster American Heritage Symposium in Omagh, County Tyrone, Ireland; and in 2015 at the Yearly Meeting of Friends in Ireland, at Newry, in County Down.

Steven began his genealogical journey in 1998 by self-publishing a remembrance of his grand-mother. He has published multiple articles about Quakers. The American Society of Genealogists awarded him the 2016 Scholar Award.

Visitors are always welcome!

The meeting is at 6:30 pm, with doors open at 6:15 at St. John's Lutheran Church,
