Do’s and Don’ts of Collaborative Genealogy Projects
Bill Cole has conducted collaborative genealogy projects in the United States, Canada, and England. He has uncovered ancestors born at sea, a shipwrecked survivor pardoned from a death sentence who survived Jamestown, two Mayflower ancestors, and multiple Revolutionary War patriots on both sides. Bill is a member of the Mayflower Society and has presented for the New England Historic Genealogical Society. His breakthrough findings of English ancestors who immigrated to Plymouth Colony during the great migration from 1620-40 have been recently published in the Mayflower Descendant Journal.
In this presentation, Bill shares his “lessons learned” including what to do and what not to do to produce successful results. This program is a must for anyone considering or doing any type of collaborative genealogy project – whether it is long-distance or across town and with distant cousins or hired professionals.
A live presentation of this topic was recorded in September 2019 on Cape Cod. It features not only Bill Cole but also his English research partner, Ms. Nicola Waddington. Their collaborative English origins research project has achieved historic breakthrough genealogical findings. It is fascinating to observe and hear from two different perspectives what is important to achieve success. Their long-distance partnership has now entered its seventh year. For a small fee, you gain access to this recorded live seminar.
