THE VENTURA COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
presents a
Free Family History Presentation
Saturday, August 17, 2019, at the
Camarillo Public Library Community Room
4101 Las Posas Road, Camarillo, CA 93010

1:00 p.m. “Big City, Common Surname: A Family for John Kelly”
Presented by Cafi Cohen
Murdered on the streets of New York in 1876, John Kelly could have been any one of 100+ John Kellys in that year’s city directory. With a death certificate that did not name parents, how can his family be identified? Using John Kelly’s case as a jumping-off point, this presentation outlines helpful techniques for any big city research as well as common name research in any location.

Cafi Cohen earned degrees in chemistry and medical technology from UCLA and the University of North Dakota and has worked as laboratory research, piano teacher, home school promoter, and nationwide speaker and author of books on homeschooling. She has been active in genealogy research since 1995, following her ancestral lines from California, the Midwest, the old south, and New England to Scotland, France, Germany, Ireland, and Italy.
