ZOOM REGISTRATION


Dathy Dailely

Presented by: Cathy Dailey

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Cathy Dailey's genealogy "addiction" began when researching her great-grandfather, a tugboat captain, who drowned during a gale storm on Lake Erie in 1909. Through vessel registry records and newspaper accounts, she was able to piece together the timetable of his tragic death and locate his grave in Cleveland, Ohio.

To bring to life the stories of her elusive ancestors, she relies on “roundabout” research methods involving property records, newspaper articles, censuses, city directories, cemetery receiving logs, and funeral home archives. She views her genealogical research as a giant jigsaw puzzle – not all of the pieces fit together precisely, yet each one adds to the richness of the image.

In addition to being a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), she belongs to various local, state, national and ethnic genealogical societies. Currently, she serves as vice president of the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society. Cathy holds an MBA from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.

ABOUT THE TOPIC

Cathy Dailey will "mine" through her relatives's property records for hidden gems of information, covering the terminology, describe the various legal descriptions of property, and provide examples of how property records can be of help in genealogy research.
