Event Details

Incorporating Social History into Your Research

Presented by: Dr. Michael Lacopo DVM

Family history should be more than names and dates.  What motivated our ancestors? Why did they migrate? Who did they interact with? How do social customs of another era affect our research? Social history and its bearing on genealogical research will be covered and a “must-read” bibliography for serious researchers will be discussed.



Dr. Michael D. Lacopo is a retired small-animal veterinarian born and raised in northern Indiana. He takes a scientific approach to his research as he does to his profession.  Researching since 1980, he has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals.  A self-described “all-American mutt” his research skills cover a broad range.
