Stephen Young

The Disguised Origin of George R. Young

This lecture is based on an article published in the November 2015 issue of Families. Using vital records, census records (both Canadian and U.S.), and city directories, Stephen will reconstruct the true story of a man whose death registration provided completely false information about his origin, age, parentage, etc. In reality, the man was probably hiding the fact from his second wife and two daughters in Kalamazoo, Michigan that he had a previous marriage and two other daughters living in Toronto. The sources will reveal the facts!
