From the analysis of known information to the creation of research goals for finding the elusive answers, your research success ratio is improved with careful planning and use of proven techniques. Taking and dissecting raw data so that a detailed research plan evolves is easier than you might think. What do you do next with those documents, letters, family stories, and other items you found or were sent by your aunt? Failure to make a research plan runs the risk of overlooking important clues in the records we already have and repeating the same research. This session includes hands-on exercises. A research plan is truly not a daunting task.

This three-hour pre-conference workshop will be held on Friday, October 27, 2017. Registration will begin at 12:30 PM with the workshop starting at 1:00 PM. This workshop will be limited to 50 people. The workshop will be held at the Best Western Plus, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It is strongly suggested that registrants bring a laptop or tablet with Internet access and their Wisconsin library card to access databases. Passwords for other subscription databases would also be useful.

As per Best Western policy, there is to be no carry-in food or beverages to be consumed in public areas. There is an on property bar for snacks and beverages.
