February 2016 Webinar

February, 2016
The Value of Working with a Professional Genealogist
  • Presenter: Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FMGS, FUGA
  • Date:  Tuesday, February 16, 2016
  • Time:  7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description:  Whether doing targeted research, consulting on your brick wall, or working along with you in a archive, historical society, or library, it’s a sensible step to hire a family history professional. We can't always make it to all the locations that hold records we need to research our family history.
    Learn about services, finding the right one, costs, and what to expect as far as a reports, copies of records, timeliness, and more. This session is directed at both the consumer and somewhat for the professional.
