Creative Research Techniques to Help You Follow the Right Ancestral Trail:
A WORKSHOP AT OGS CONFERENCE 2017

Family history research is all about following clues and creativity—imagining what records might exist around a life event, figuring out how to find the records, gleaning every bit of information from them—and letting those records lead you to the next source. Whether you are new to genealogy, or you have been at it for a while, this workshop will reinvigorate your research with new ideas and techniques. And if much of your research has been online—we will definitely open your eyes to more possibilities. There will be lots of practical examples and class participation—for an enjoyable and stimulating start to your conference weekend.
