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.
