Discover Your Ancestors’ Hidden Depths with the Spring Virtual Genealogy Conference

Watch this video with Sunny in which she talks about the ways she learned about the hidden depths of her ancestors from a city directory.

I sat down with Sunny Jane Morton, who is delivering the keynote address for the 2019 Spring Virtual Conference in March, and asked her to give us a preview of some of the things she’ll be talking about in her live presentation. In Revealing Hidden Depths in Our Ancestors, Sunny will talking about how the events our ancestors experienced can have lasting effects.

Watch this video presentation for a gripping story about what a simple city directory revealed of her ancestors’ involvement in the Great Johnstown Flood.
