The Real Life of Vital Records:
The Secrets of Finding Them Today
You are invited to join us for our monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, as Diane MacLean Boumenot will be discussing the use of Vital Records in our research.
Understanding when, where, and why vital records were created, and the changes in practices over the years, can help us locate these valuable records today. Learn how to use copies, abstracts, indexes and “substitutes” on the path to the best record. Improve your family history research today by maximizing your ability to locate the records that tie generations together.
Diane MacLean Boumenot specializes in southern New England family history and publishes genealogical guidance on her website, One Rhode Island Family. In 2018, she co-authored, with Maureen Taylor, the National Genealogical Society’s NGS Research in the States volume, Research in Rhode Island.
Diane speaks locally and also contributes to Legacy Family Tree Webinars. She holds a B.A. in American History and English from Wesleyan University. She is also a graduate of ProGen28 and coordinator of Progen 40. currently, she is serving as Vice President of the Rhode Island Genealogy Society and is on the Membership Committee of the National Genealogical Society.
