On Saturday, July 11th, I will be speaking in Crystal Lake, Illinois at the McHenry County (IL) Genealogy Society’s Summer Conference. Click here for information and hopefully I will see you there!
I’ll be delivering the following lectures:
- Evernote for Genealogists: Evernote is a popular way to track your research, clip website content and images, and better yet: you can synchronize the notebooks across different devices and platforms. See how genealogists are using Evernote to not only organize research but to get more information from their finds on the Internet.
- They’re Alive: Searching for Living Persons: Genealogists have many reasons to locate living relatives – from connecting with long lost cousins to performing collateral searches to break down brick walls. Learn the most effective ways to find living people using Internet search engines and resources.
- Tracing Your New York Ancestors: Participants will learn the basics of researching their New York ancestors starting with the arrival of Henry Hudson in 1609, to the Yankee migration from New England and then the Immigration era up through the present-day.
- Can I Use That in My Genealogy? What You Should Know About Copyright: Learn the basics of US copyright law and how you can still use copyrighted items such as document, articles and photographs as part of your genealogy research.
