“They Survived the Johnstown Flood?! How to Reconstruct Your Ancestors’ Amazing Stories” by Sunny Morton
A heroic rescue, a love story and a 30-foot wall of water. That’s just part of my ancestors’ experience in the Great Johnstown Flood of 1889. Come learn how to reconstruct fascinating experiences from your own family history by combining clues from your family’s knowledge, documents from genealogy websites, good historical research and Googling to fill in the gaps. All while learning the riveting story of one of the worst disasters in U.S. history.

Sunny Morton is an internationally-known, award-winning genealogy writer, editor, and speaker. Her voice is heard on the Genealogy Gems Podcast, which has more than 2 million downloads worldwide. She is a Contributing Editor at Family Tree Magazine and Co-Editor of Ohio Genealogy News, the quarterly news magazine of the Ohio Genealogical Society.
