Family historians rely on websites like Ancestry.com and FamilySearch to find their ancestors. These are vital to research but what other online resources can help you? To become a better and more successful researcher, you need to be familiar with websites that include library and archival collections, digital collections, images, and tools. Websites that aren’t “genealogy” websites can make the difference in breaking down your ancestral brick walls.
As a result of this program, attendees will:
• Introduce their audience to websites that have genealogical relevant content outside of familiar genealogy websites
• Encourage out-of-the-box thinking in regards to where genealogical records can be found
• Suggest ways to plan future genealogy research
