AGF: Pamela Stone Eagleson's
Saturday, September 30
AGF: Pamela Stone Eagleson's "Finding Thomas's Father..." including a Lecture by the Author  (Education)
10:30 am
Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Main Branch, Room 3A
Pamela Stone Eagleson, CG, is a professional genealogist based in Maine where she operates Gen-nections, http://www.gen-nections.com/. Pamela regularly attends institutes including Practical Genetic Genealogy (GRIP, 2014), Virginia: Her Records & Her Laws (IGHR, 2009), Virginia Institute of Genealogical Research (VIGR, 2000). Eagleson has numerous publications including three articles in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ). She is a board member of the National Genealogical Society (NGS) and past winner of the NGS Family History Writing Contest for "The Art, Trade and Mystery of a Mariner: Captain William Greenway of Philadelphia, Mariner and Patriot."
 
Pamela Stone Eagleson will present "Finding Thomas's Father: An 18th Century Prince William County, Virginia Case Study" remotely. The presentation is based on an NGSQ article written by Eagleson. Thomas Stone left few records when he died in 1791 in Prince William County, Virginia. No document or reference names his parentage. Finding Thomas's father took thirty years. Using indirect evidence and helped by technological advances, Thomas's father has been found. This lecture demonstrates the process of creating a proof argument to identify Thomas's father.
 
The presentation is open to all. Participation in the AGF article discussion is not required. After Pamela's presentation, the AGF will discuss how Y-DNA was used to support Eagleson's argument and other methodologies she used to make her indirect evidence case. Platting metes-and-bounds property descriptions will be included. 
 
 
Article: Pamela Stone Eagleson, "Leaving No Stone Unturned: A Father for Thomas Stone (d. 1791) of Prince William County, Virginia," NGSQ 98 (June 2010): 121-136.
