In these six classes Fred will do presentation lectures and guided study on the methods that he used to research his family and bring the life of his Revolutionary War ancestor to life in his book The Immortal Patriot.


Research methods, record keeping, and different sources of information will all be covered. Most of these sources are free. So join us for what will certainly be an exciting look into our past!

Frederick Channell is a licensed history teacher who studied graduate genealogy at UMASS Boston with Doctor Julie Winch. He is a three time past president of the South Shore Genealogical Society in Hanover. His book The Immortal Patriot takes the reader along on the adventure of researching and discovering the life of his Fifth Great Grandfather, One of just a few revolutionary War Patriots who lived to be photographed. Many of the sources of information he found will be shown during these lectures.
