Jeffrey Bockman

No Birth Certificate No Problem



Jeff takes a look at the wide variety of primary and secondary sources to determine when a person was born and who their parents where if a birth certificate is not available or can’t be found. He reviews a variety of records to help determine the parents, the birth date and the birth location. Case studies are included.



Jeffrey was a contributing editor for the former Everton's Genealogical Helper, and a feature writer for the former Heritage Quest Magazine, and had articles published in the Digital Genealogist, FGS Forum, Family Tree Magazine (UK), Missing Links, and others. Many of the articles can be found online at Genealogy According to Jeff - www.JeffBockman.com/gatj

He has been doing genealogical research since 1988 and has been active in societies, society management, classes, and lectures since 1994. He has been the webmaster for the DuPage County ILGenWeb Project since 1996.
