Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society January 2019 Program: "Grandmother's Secret"

Posted by dbarton

This photo of professional genealogist Christine Cochran’s grandmother has always had its place in a silver frame on the black grand piano in Christine’s home. She wears an organza silk blouse embroidered with roses and a mysterious winged creature. A cameo is pinned where the drape of the collar meets the button-down front. She is elegant and beautiful as she looks down demurely towards left her hand, perhaps contemplating her wedding ring? But what was she like, Christine wondered? What kind of life did she lead?

Join the Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society at 7 p.m., Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at the Family History Center, 9800 Foothills Canyon Blvd #B, Highlands Ranch, CO 80126 for a presentation of "Grandmother's Secrets” and learn how Christine traversed the scant and conflicting data available on her grandmother’s life and what she has gleaned from it.

Christine Cochran is a professional genealogist and owner of Our Provenance, Ltd. She has been conducting genealogical research for more than ten years. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and the Colorado Chapter of APG. She is Vice-President and Researcher for Colorado Genealogy Society and a delegate on the Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies. She is also a member of the Mountain Genealogists Society and the Foothills Genealogy Society. She volunteers as a genealogist and researcher at the Denver Public Library – Western History and Genealogy Department and as an indexer at the Colorado State Archives. She holds a BS in Geological Engineering from Colorado School of Mines, and a Master’s in Computer Information Systems from Regis University. She is also a graduate of Professional Genealogists Study Groups (ProGen32) and holds a certificate in Fundamentals of Forensic Genealogy from the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIPP.) Drawing on a wide range of skills, Christine helps people discover the stories in their family histories.

Arrive early at 6:30 p.m. for networking with fellow genealogists. You never know who might have an answer to your most perplexing research problem.
