Hunting for Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals  

by Teresa McMillin

Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, Illinois.  The US records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover on Germany. This lecture will deal with how his town of origin and parents were identified in spite of the lack of records naming him. Carefully researching each of his associates and correlating all available evidence reveals the origins of Henry. Use of the Genealogical Proof Standard is demonstrated.
