The presenter is Bob Inhoff. He is Chair of the Technology Committee for the
Indian River Genealogical Society in Vero Beach, where he has lived for more than ten years.
Bob also serves as the Webmaster for the Florida State Genealogical Society, as well as for a surname organization.

In this genealogical mystery case, Bob Inhoff will describe the incredible tale of how
he recently discovered that his father was adopted and that his previously “documented” line
to his membership in a lineage society, the First Families of Ohio, was actually through his father’s adoptive family.

Bob will then illustrate and explain how more than twenty tools helped him uncover
and connect with his “new” family and their roots in Germany.

light refreshments will be available between the business meeting and the program.
