Methods to Find a Maiden Name

I was over at the New England Historic genealogical society web site http://www.newenglandancestors.org/ and noticed a link to a presentation by David Curtis Dearborn, FASG, an NEHGS Staff Genealogist, given at NEHGS on 7 January 2007, titled "Methods of Finding a Wife's Maiden Name." This is part of an Online Seminar Series.

The presentation is audio linked to Powerpoint slides. To me, this is the ideal method for presenting conference speakers presentations - you can hear the speaker's voice and see the slide well. This is a MacroMedia Flash presentation - you may have to download some software. Turn up your speakers. You can go from slide to slide by clicking on the ndext slide in the slide index on the right side of the screen.

This is an excellent presentation (well, what did you expect from a well-known researcher and presenter?) on a topic that all researchers - novice and professional alike - need help with.

Try this link - https://admin.acrobat.com/_a55262008/wifesmaidenname/ I'm not sure if it will work for non-members, but give it a try. If it doesn't work, please let me know. I logged out and tested it and it seemed to work for me, but who knows.
