April 2015 Webinar

April, 2015
Genealogy Do-Over:  A Year of Learning From Mistakes
 
  • Presenter: Thomas MacEntee
  • Date:  Tuesday, April 21, 2015
  • Time:  7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description:  It isn’t often that we get a “do-over” when it comes to stuff that matters in life. When you first got started researching your family history, did you do some things that now are just plain “embarrassing” such as name collecting, not citing sources and more? Well now there’s hope since genealogists from beginner to advanced are employing new research methodologies and documentation practices. Follow genealogist Thomas MacEntee as he basically starts his genealogy research from scratch but includes sound research practices and methodologies as well as new templates, tools and the latest technology to create a better body of family history research.
