Sourcing and Documenting Information by Charles S. “Chuck”Mason Jr. – Session I
Admittedly not the most exciting part of tracing ancestors, documenting the information is by far the most important. Source citation is critical to genealogy research, and Mr. Mason will show how to correctly document sources and explain why it is so important.
Genealogy 201: Beyond the Basics by Tish Como – Session II
Genealogy is about more than recording the names and dates associated with one’s ancestors; it’s about discovering how they lived. This session will focus on locating records and resources that can help tell your family’s story; developing good research habits; using advanced search techniques for better results; and critically evaluating records and findings.
