DVD of Diane L. Richard's report on Oct. 4, 2014 on "Joel Lane's Ancestors: Digging Deeper"

The DVD of Diane L. Richard’s report on Oct. 4, 2014 on “Joel Lane’s Ancestors: Digging Deeper” is available by mail.  The recording was made on a home video camera so it is not a professional production but you will get to hear Diane speaking about the research she and others have done on the Lanes. Thanks to a grant from the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in North Carolina (NSCDA in NC), Diane Richard conducted further research into the ancestry of Joel Lane.  Using Joel’s father (one of many Josephs) as the starting point, her talk discussed the research conducted by her, staff and volunteers at JLMH, and Lane descendants who have been generous enough to share their research. Diane briefly touched on DNA research.
    Were there any great revelations?  No.  Do we know more about Joel Lane’s Ancestors? Yes.  Are there still questions to be answered?  Definitely.
    Diane L. Richard is the Principle of Mosaic Research and Project Management (MosaicRPM). She has M.E. and M.B.A. degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
