Forensic Genealogy & Upcoming Events

Forensic Genealogy by Colleen Fitzpatrick, PHD has just arrived at the McKinney Public Library. It has innovative tools for getting the most information out of your resources. Its topics include "Digital Detective" work - using photographs for location and time, becoming a "Database Detective" - using online, microform, periodical, and event databases, and becoming a "DNA Detective". Each topic includes a case study so you can see how the information is put to use.

This title can be checked out.
