Janice M. Sellers

In celebration of Family History Month, community members are invited to the free presentation, “Reconstructing Family History Information When You Start with Almost Nothing: A Case Study” from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14. The talk will be given in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Often, a modern family has little solid information from which to build a family tree. This case study by genealogist Janice M. Sellers¬†will demonstrate techniques and sources that enabled a researcher to reconstruct six generations of a family that emigrated from Eastern Europe to rural western Pennsylvania in the mid-1800s, although the search began with only the slimmest of remembered information: a town name, one person’s last name, a married woman’s first name and a third person’s occupation. A key clue was an obituary in a newspaper.

Sellers specializes in newspaper and Jewish research. She is the editor of two genealogy journals and a member of APG, Genealogical Speakers Guild, San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society, California Genealogical Society and African American Genealogical Society of Northern California. She has volunteered at the Oakland Regional Family History Center for 12 years.

Her talk is presented in partnership by the Davis Genealogy Club and the Yolo County Library and funded by the Friends of the Davis Public Library and the Davis Genealogy Club. No reservations are required.

For more information, contact Victoria Klein at 530-757-5593, ext. 1139, or victoria.klein@yolocounty.org.
