ANOTHER GREAT PROGRAM
FROM GENEALOGY SOCIETY OF ROCKLAND COUNTY
NOTE NEW DATE: OCTOBER 30, 2007
NEW CITY LIBRARY
Topic: The Silent Woman: Bringing a Name to Life. Too often, our female ancestors end up
being just a name on a pedigree chart or as the neglected half of a family history. This
presentation, based on Sharons book, A Genealogist's Guide to Finding Your Female
Ancestors, will feature sources created by and about women and will instruct researchers
on how to breathe life into their female ancestors by using womens social histories in
conjunction with primary genealogical sources.
Speaker: Sharon DeBartolo Carmack , CG, is a partner in the Salt Lake City-based
research firm Warren, Carmack & Associates. She specializes in writing, mentoring, and
editing narrative family histories, as well as Irish/Irish-American family history
research. Sharon is the author of sixteen books, including Discovering Your Female
Ancestors, and You Can Write Your Family History, and hundreds of articles that have
appeared in nearly every major genealogical journal and publication. She has a B.A. in
English from Regis University and a Diploma in Irish Studies from the National University
of Ireland, Galway. This is possibly the only chance you will have to hear this nationally
recognized writer and speaker for free!
Bonus Presentation: Primetimes 20/20 Dateline: Sharon Carmack Interviews the Worlds
Oldest Living Genealogist, Ole Smirnoff Bernatelli . (Joint presentation by Sharon
DeBartolo Carmack and Jim Warren.) Ole's been around since 1897. But it wasn't
until his column, Bringing Up the Rear, appeared in the NGS NewsMagazine in 2004 that
Ole shot to fame. Join us to howl at the sage (and strange) advice that results when
genealogy's brightest star questions it's most unusual senior citizen.
