Practical Genealogy  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Jenny Carlisle

Getting a good start in your genealogy research will depend in large part to doing it correctly from the beginning.  Many a seasoned genealogist has had to go back and make corrections after years of research.  We will cover the proper way to use names/dates/places, citing your sources, software, where to find information, and organizing the abundant information that your family has left for you to uncover.  Let’s avoid some common mistakes and get started!

Jenny Carlisle got started doing genealogy in 2010 when her mother asked her to ‘do her genealogy’.  Without any knowledge, she simply started copying other people’s family trees and did not search out the documents to support her ancestors.  After joining CRCGS in 2016 and attending the wonderful programs and classes offered by the society, it was apparent that doing genealogy correctly from the beginning would have been a lot easier!

Expanding your success with Family Search: a focus on records that are not digitally indexed  (Class)
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.
