Genealogy 101- Vital Records on Steroids
by Therese Fisher
One of the basic goals of genealogy is to prove someone existed. That is where vital records enter the picture. A document created at or near the time of the birth, marriage and/or death can do that. But what happens when your ancestor was so inconsiderate to be born, married or die before official records were created? We have the answer.
1999 to current: Researcher for US Army Past Conflicts Repatriation Branch. For this research I combine private investigation and genealogical research tools to locate families of MIA/POW from past conflicts. By contract, I am required to have professional accreditation (Accredited Genealogist from International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists, one of two national organization that issue credentials to genealogists) to fulfill contractual terms for the Army. I also was the sole contractor for the US Air Force Office of Mortuary Affairs from 2000 until their program was completed in 2012.
Founded the Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
I have been involved in the restoration and preservation of the Desoto County court records some of which are housed at the Genealogical Society of Desoto County Library.
Speaker at national and local genealogical societies.
