We would like to introduce our newest Associate Member of CAFG, Frank Southcott. He has always had a keen interest in family. He has been piecing together his family and others for the past 23 years in England, Ireland, Canada and the United States. His 37 year career as a military aviator and commercial pilot has permitted him to research in many of those country’s repositories and archives, giving a broad perspective to his genealogical experience. In 2008, Frank turned professional genealogist and focuses his research in Chester County, Pennsylvania, one of William Penn’s original counties. He holds a B.S. in Business from the University of Maryland and an MBA from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. He holds a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University and has “started the clock” for certification with the Board for Certification of Genealogists. Frank has attended numerous genealogical conferences and educational opportunities including NGS, the British Institute, Boston University’s “Writing Family History Narrative” course, as well as the Forensic Genealogy Institute. He resides in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
We would like to welcome Frank to the CAFG group!
