Western Michigan Genealogical Society - Got Ancestors?!  (Society Events)
Salvation Army Kroc Center, 2500 Division Ave S, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49507
This year’s Got Ancestors?! seminar will be on Saturday 12 October at The Salvation Army Kroc Center on South Division Ave.
 
Our speaker is Michael D. Lacopo DVM. Dr. Michael D. Lacopo was born and raised in northern Indiana surrounded by extended family always willing to tell tall tales. Intrigued by his maternal family’s claim to be kinfolk of Abraham Lincoln, and his paternal family’s stories of murder and mayhem, he took to genealogical research in 1980 to substantiate these family stories.
