Speaker: Bob Black

He started his career in El Centro, CA, but moved to Tucson for the cooler weather in 1984. He was born in Albuquerque, grew up in San Diego (such a tough place to live!), spent two years speaking German in Germany (but is now only able to tell you when they are cussing in Indiana Jones movies), and graduated with a bachelor's and master's degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He has six children and nine grandchildren. He's been at the Family History Center since 2011 and has been serving as Co-Director with his wife June since 2014. He really enjoys working with people at the Center on their family history discovery journey. 
 
Program:  Unreliable Records: Don't Believe Everything You Read!
The genealogy records we rely upon can be incorrect for a variety of reasons.  Here’s a lighthearted look at some examples Kathleen has found while researching her family tree.  Let’s laugh at the confusion that unreliable records may cause!  And then talk about the importance of “reasonably exhaustive research” and "resolving conflicting evidence” 
SpeakerKathleen Carter

She also enjoys helping people to discover their ancestors and reaffirm family stories.  Kathleen is an instructor of the “Genetic Genealogy in Practice” Study Group for the Pima County Genealogy Society.
