"County and Local Histories:
Putting Your Ancestors in Context"
Our direct-line ancestor may not have been a
prominent member of the community nor have been included in the county
history, but that doesn’t mean we discard the old local history as a
valuable genealogical resource. Look deeper and analyze the evidence!
October – 15 – George G Morgan
Multiple Databases in Tandem to Solve Problems"
This program discusses how to use the major
genealogical databases and your own compilation of sites and resources
to locate as much evidence as possible to help find proof to answer
questions. It also mentions some of the new DNA tools by Ancestry DNA
and MyHeritage DNA.
