10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Debbie Shaw Schwartz is one of the best resources for finding information and records.  They have scanned and uploaded billions of records from places all over the world.  And, as hard as they are working to digitize and index those records, as many as 50-60% are not searchable digitally.  So, when you enter your name/s and don’t get results, does that mean records for your ancestors are not there?  Not necessarily.  In this presentation, I will show you many ways to find records and information without a digital index on Family Search.

10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Most genealogists aren’t taking full advantage of all the clues available in city directories. Learn how go beyond a mere “lookup” of your ancestor and their family. Understand how city directories were created, the secrets of various abbreviations, and how to use the F.A.N. Club approach to getting the most information possible.
Participants will learn the history of city directories, how important they were to even the smallest town, and how to extract every possible clue for your genealogy research. We’ll cover digital/online directories, how to deal with numbering grid and street name changes, what those “weird codes” mean and more.
Thomas MacEntee is a professional genealogist specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogical research and as a means of interacting with others in the family history community.
