Historically, regardless of the country of residence, the size of your average family was much larger than in modern times. Genealogists often encounter at least one black sheep ancestor in every family unit researched. For many researchers, the discovery of a "black sheep" turns out to be the fascinating part of tracing their family tree. This seminar will discuss various techniques when researching and interviewing people who would fall into the category. This would also include the reality that more often than not, the “black sheep” are the ones who are telling the truth! Presented by Bryan Mulcahy

Bryan Mulcahy has been the adult reference, genealogy, and literacy librarian at the Lee County Library System for the past 31 years.   He received his  Masters of Library Sciences at Florida State University in 1984 and for the next 6 years worked as the reference, genealogy, and circulation librarian in Georgia.   Over the years Bryan has kept abreast with the newest genealogical technologies as they became a part of the library system.
