Did you miss Judy Russell's live webinar? This is another opportunity to hear it!
NCGS is proud to provide a recording of How Old Did He Have To Be...?, with Judy G. Russell. This recorded webinar will be available for a free, 3-day public viewing, over the weekend of 3-5 April 2015. This webinar will be accessible from the NCGS website.
Is this man John the father or John the son? Could that man be my ancestor who married in 1802?
Knowing a person’s age is often the key to distinguishing between two people of the same name. But if no record gives a birth date, how do you know how old someone was? The law can often give the answer.

Diane L. Richard has been researching the genealogy of her family, her husband's family and client families for over 22 years. She has never lived where any of her family resided and so became adept, early on, at doing remote research into the records of the US, England, Finland and Poland. She has lived in Raleigh, North Carolina (home of the wonderful State Archives of North Carolina) for 15 years and is the principle of Mosaic Research and Project Management.
