A Maryland resident claimed an 1816 Vermont birth to Vermont-born parents, but no known record provides his specific birthplace or his parents’ or siblings’ names. Studying his ties to his neighbors and those associates who shared close geographic, vocational, political, and religious proximity brings a Maryland man home to his Vermont family. Learn how the presenter analyzed, correlated, and assembled common and lesser-known records to build a persuasive case.
