FREE WEBINAR: Did I Get Everything? Creating a Checklist for Genealogy Research

Here is a way to attend one of my brand new lectures without leaving the home or office!  On Wednesday, January 3, 2018, starting at 1:00 pm Central, I will be teaching Did I Get Everything? Creating a Checklist for Genealogy Research over at the Legacy Family Tree Webinars site.

This lecture is FREE, but seating is limited to the first 1,000 attendees and promises to fill up fast!  Click HERE to register and then make sure you log in at least 15 minutes before start time!

Why is a Genealogy Research Checklist Important?

Summary: Are you really done with researching that ancestor? Many genealogists think they have a brick wall when, in fact, they just haven’t done a “reasonably exhaustive search.” Learn how to assemble a genealogy research checklist to take your genealogy to the next level.

Description: Participants will learn how to identify gaps in their genealogy research and then move to the next level of research. These levels include using genealogy networks, going beyond online research with the help of Family Search Centers and other “offline” resources, and crafting a genealogy research checklist.

Outline:

  • What Am I Missing? Identifying Gaps in Your Genealogy Research
  • Tapping Into the Power of Genealogy Networks
    • Online
    • Genealogy Societies
    • Genealogy Conferences
  • Going Beyond Online Research
    • WorldCat
    • Archives, Libraries and Repositories
    • Family Search Centers
    • Hiring a Professional Genealogist
  • Crafting a Genealogy Research Checklist
  • Resource List

I hope to “see” you on the Genealogy Research Checklist webinar!

FREE Legacy Family Tree Webinar: WolframAlpha for Genealogists

Here is a way to attend one of my most popular lectures without leaving the home or office!  On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, starting at 1:00 pm Central, I will be teaching WolframAlpha for Genealogists over at the Legacy Family Tree Webinars site.

This lecture is FREE, but seating is limited to the first 1,000 attendees and promises to fill up fast!  Click HERE to register and then make sure you log in at least 15 minutes before start time!

What is WolframAlpha?

I was always curious about the WolframAlpha site – which is actually a computational database and NOT a search engine. Once I figure out the best ways to get information, I realized it could be used to advance my genealogy and family history research.

Want to know the historical value of $1 in 1910? WolframAlpha has the answer. Want to know all the nicknames for the given name Elizabeth? WolframAlpha has the answer. What about the weather conditions on a specific date and in a specific location.  Yep, WolframAlpha to the rescue!

Get the Guide to WolframAlpha for Genealogy and Family History Research

I love Wolfram Alpha so much, I produced a best-selling book, Guide to WolframAlpha for Genealogy and Family History Research, which offers an insider’s look at this amazing (and FREE) “computational knowledgebase” that genealogists can leverage to assist with their research.

***

I hope to “see” you on the WolframAlpha webinar!
