Dr. Lacopo was born and raised in northern Indiana. Michael completed his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1991, at the same time that he was honing his research skills. He treats his genealogical research as he does medicine – carefully, methodically and completely. Having ancestors from many geographic locales as well as immigrants spanning the 17th century to the 20th century, Michael has developed a wide variety of proficiencies. He believes that as genealogists we should tell the tales or our ancestors and is a vocal proponent for learning the social history that interweaves our ancestors into the fabric of the past. Dr. Lacopo has presented lectures and programs at several NGS and FGS conferences, as well state genealogical societies, the Palatines to America Conference, and many local and regional family history meetings.
