Teaching Genealogy Classes

Genealogist, Anna Hopkins-Arnold of Rootfinders Genealogy Research spoke to the Southwest Colorado Genealogical Society at their meeting on May 12, 2013.

The program was entitled “Too Many Daves: Methods for Telling Your Ancestor from Others of the Same Name”.   It taught society members how to “differentiate” between several candidates for a particular ancestor. For more info on this class, click here.

“Too Many Daves” was very well received by the members of the Southwest Colorado Genealogical Society and will be repeated at the Colorado Family History Expo, June 1-2, in Colorado Springs.  Anna is a member of the Southwest Colorado Genealogical Society and the coordinator for the Society’s participation in the nationwide “1940 Census Community Indexing Project”. The Society website posted the following comments about this program, other classes that Anna has offered through the Durango Public Library, and her work on the 1940 census indexing project.

The Society would like to sincerely thank Anna Hopkins-Arnold for her contributions to the the genealogical community through her very informative trainings. From “Too Many Daves” to the Family Search Indexing training, Anna has shared from the wealth of her knowledge and experience and has helped many of us learn new methods of research and encouraged us to give back and pay forward through being a part of the Indexing project.” – Southwest Colorado Genealogical Society website (www.swcogen.org  May 25, 2012)
