December 2019 Webinar

Genealogy Pit Stop: Research in 15 Minute Increments

  • Presenter: Thomas MacEnteeThomas MacEntee
  • Date:  Tuesday, December 17, 2019
  • Time: 7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description: You have 15 minutes before you need to _____ (pick up the grandchildren / wash the dog / make dinner ...). Is it really possible to do meaningful genealogy research in that short time period? Are you putting off researching an ancestor because you believe you need a two or three hour block of time? Learn how to use the Genealogy Pit Stop concept to succeed in the research race!
Participants will learn what race car driving teams already know: you can accomplish important, detail-oriented work in a short amount of time. You'll learn how to leverage to-do lists, research logs, tracking systems, clue gathering tricks and more to actually do genealogy research every day! No more saving that research for when you have a large block of time.
After registering, you will receive an email with information and a link to join us the night of the webinar and handout information.  Please remember that this is a first come first served webinar.  Registering does not hold a spot for you.  Those that log in first will be admitted to the webinar. If you have problems connecting to the software, be sure to check that your browser software is running the most current version available.
