Lecture Topics - Four Sessions
Session 1. Genealogy Do-Over: A Year of Learning From Mistakes. Starts at 9:15 am. It isnít often that we get a "do-over" when it comes to stuff that matters in life. Follow genealogist Thomas MacEntee as he basically starts his genealogy research from scratch but includes sound research practices and methodologies to create a better body of family history research.
Session 2. Successful Collateral and Cluster Searching. Starts at 10:45 am. While you may think youíve hit a brick wall with your research, have you tried using cluster and collateral search strategies to look for an opening? Researching non-direct relations as well as those friends and neighbors in your ancestorsí network can pay off in ways you might not imagine.
Session 3. After Youíre Gone: Future Proofing Your Genealogy Research. Starts at 1:30 pm. Have you ever considered what will happen to your years of genealogy research once youíre gone? Learn how to ensure that your hard work carries on.
Session 4. Genealogy: The Future Is Now. Starts at 3:00pm. Do you have trouble keeping up with technology, especially programs, apps and websites that other genealogists seem to be using these days? Youíre not alone. After a quick review of how much has changed in the past 30 years, youíll learn whatís hot, whatís now and how to prepare for the genealogy technology of the future.
