February 20 – Saturday Seminar
The speaker will be Drew Smith, co-author with George G. Morgan of the book, “How to do Everything: Genealogy” and co-host with George G. Morgan of the Genealogy Guys podcast. He will give three one-hour talks about the following topics:
“Using FamilySearch and Ancestry.com to Build Your Basic Family Tree”
Where to begin? In this session, learn how to fill out the most basic information on your family tree by using information found on the FamilySearch and Ancestry.com websites, including such records as census, birth/marriage/death, immigration, and military.
“Online Search Techniques to Make You Efficient and Effective”
Both FamilySearch and Ancestry.com hold billions of records, often making it difficult to find just the records you want. In this session, learn how to narrow your search to certain types of records, how to filter out irrelevant content, and how to zero in on a specific record collection.
“DNA Testing and Other Brick Wall Techniques”
Sooner or later, every genealogist hits a brick wall on each ancestral line. In this session, learn about a number of different brick wall techniques, including DNA testing, cluster research, and crowdsourcing.
