How to Turn Online Genealogy Clues into Ancestor Answers

By Diane Haddad

Doesn’t it seem sometimes like everyone else gets lucky in their online genealogy searches, producing family tree revelations with a few taps on the keyboard? While your searches turn up only the 400 other Michael Smiths in your ancestor’s neighborhood?

We’re presenting a special edition webinar that’ll help you work through web searches and small clues to put together answers about your ancestor’s life.

In Turn Online Clues Into Ancestor Answers, veteran genealogist Lisa A. Alzo will show you how to:

  • formulate a step-by-step online research strategy
  • set realistic expectations for what you might find online
  • work around the shortcomings of internet research to follow clues to your ancestor’s identity

This 30-minute presentation is Tuesday, July 30, at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT, 5 p.m. MT, 4 p.m. PT). Your $29.99 registration includes a PDF of the presentation slides and access to view the recorded session as many times as you like (that goes even if you’re registered but you can’t attend on Tuesday).
