Melvin Collier has provided an outstanding outline of why Cluster genealogy research is important and critical. He mentions the FAN principle as well, which was developed by Elizabeth S. MilIs. We also applaud him for the work he is doing and sharing. Doing cluster research allows you to go deep down the lines of a family. It helps build evidence that you need to solve those genealogy brick walls.
We also want to congratulate Melvin on being selected to speak at the International Black Genealogy Summit (IBGS) in DC (www.blackgenealogysummit.com). IBGS will be held Sept 1, 2 & 3 in VA.
