"Using Ancestry Tree Effectively"

ZOOM MEETING

Presented by: Suz Bates

Marty Acks

ABOUT THE TOPIC

Online ancestry trees can be a mixed bag of tricks. How can you use the trees on ancestry.com safely and effectively in your Paper Trail and DNA Trail genealogy research? Suz Bates, a local genealogist will focus on topics including security, sources, data fields, uploads, other’s trees and more. Learn how to create and use Ancestry trees safely, securely, effectively, and efficiently. Any “arborist” will be surprised by the techniques!

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Suz Bates has been a family history researcher for over 40 years and a private consultant for 20 years. Starting her study of genealogy in the early 1970s, before computers, Suz spent many hours at the Newberry Library, learning traditional research methods. Since then she has built on those skills, attending numerous classes, workshops and conferences.

Suz earned a B.A. in modern foreign language with a minor in history and an M.S. in education. She taught both adults and children in various educational settings. Suz takes these teaching and lecturing skills, combined with her extensive genealogical research experience, into her genealogy career of speaking, researching and consulting in an easily understood manner with enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge.

Suz has been a member of various genealogy and history associations including the National Genealogical Society, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, the NSDAR, the Du Page County Genealogical Society, the Fox Valley Genealogical Society and CAGGNI. She is listed in the Genealogical Speakers Guild.
