Genealogy Smart Start: Things I Wish I'd Known
Get some great tips from this genealogist who had to learn the hard way, plus a few smart tricks she picked up from experts along the way. You can start smarter than I did!
Where They Once Stood: Finding Your Ancestor's Place of Origin
For many genealogists, crossing the pond to find an ancestor's place of origin in the old country is an insurmountable brick wall. This presentation offers examples of American records that can break down that barrier.
Unlocking Notation Codes on Alien Passenger Lists
Finding an immigrant's name on a passenger list is exciting, but there's more information there than you might expect. Learn what the cryptic abbreviations and number codes jotted on U.S. customs manifests can reveal about an immigrant's experience when they arrived in "Amerika."
I Got My DNA Results. Now What?
Many people take a DNA test to learn their ethnic heritage, but when the results come back they don't know what to do next. This talk offers basic and practical suggestions for getting started with your DNA results.
