The History of Genealogy:

From Biblical begetting, royalty, Donald Lines Jacobus to online ancestors

1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Eastern Time via Zoom 


The history of genealogy, finding and recording ancestors has a very long history. It is a field that started in the Middle Ages, and is still evolving today. Find out how it started in the context of corruption, lies and ambition, but transformed into a field with high standards, accuracy and advanced tools — and controversy. 

Mark Fearer is a professional genealogist with Ancestral Discovery (, specializing in Jewish genealogy, and has pursued family history since 1984. He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and several genealogy societies. He has attended the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research, and Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh, and is a graduate of the ProGen Study Course. Mark has a long history with GSBC, having served as President in 2018, Vice-President in 2015, 16, & 17, and as a Director in 2019. He now lives in Colorado.
