Webinar: Patents: Your Ancestor the Inventor
Speaker: Christine Cohen
When: Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 11:00am Eastern
Did your ancestor have a great idea and apply for a patent? I will show how the information contained in applying for and acquiring patents, can add interesting details to your ancestors’ lives and assist you with your research. You may find details about Citizenship status, Maiden names, Legal Name changes, Death date, Heirs and Employers.
I am a long time member of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS), and have served in many capacities, including President. In addition to WAGS, I’m also a member of the El Redondo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Society of Daughters of Holland Dames and the Association of Professional Genealogists. My interest in genealogy began in 1977 with the airing of the TV mini-series “Roots” and was piqued when I found a typed pedigree chart of my Dutch heritage from the New Netherlands in the 1660’s. I am a native Californian, a graduate of UCLA in Political Science and have worked for Vitol Aviation Company since 1993.
