March 2017 Webinar

I Found My Family on the Internet! Now What Do I Do?
  • Presenter: Jill MorelliJill Morelli
  • Date:  Tuesday, March 21, 2017
  • Time: 7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description: When you find that "fluttering leaf" attached to a possible ancestor, what do you do? When you are ready to post genealogical information on a website, how do you decide where to post your family information? Do you accept the answer given to you by the leaf? What is your decision process for where to post? We will review three levels of analysis so that you can make an informed decision on whether that fluttering leaf is one you ought to accept, or whether that website is where you want to post. We will start by reviewing the clues given us by the web address, and then analyze the platform, the contents and, finally, the evidence. Examples illustrate the risks and the rewards of use of information we find online.
