September 8 – “Researching Smith’s and Davis’s – A Case Study"
Mary Ann Machonkin, president of the genealogy society will talk about how she was able to find information about her Smith and Davis ancestors using record types that are less commonly used by researchers such as: land and probate records, early tax lists and court records.
October 13 – “Getting the Most from Fold3.com”
The presentation will be given by Peter Summers, a genealogy lecturer from Pinellas County. Fold3.com is a website focused primarily on digitized military records and is especially valuable for Revolutionary War and War of 1812 records. However it also has city directories, early passport applications and some naturalization indexes and records. Peter will explore how to search as well as browse for ancestors' records, and what can be done with those records once they are located. It is free to use in the Family History Center. Members may add Memorial Pages to honor military heroes from their families by adding photos, documents and stories to the website.

On this webinar-on-CD Russ Worthington will share insights and methodologies about how to best use this website for family history research. He will also provide suggestions about contributing your own photographs.
