Starting a Genealogy Research Project, Monday, May 30, 2016 - 6:30pm
Carlingwood Branch
When we first start delving into our family tree research we often do it in a haphazard way. This presentation by genealogist Ken McKinlay will discuss tips and tricks to approach your genealogy research in a methodical manner. It will touch upon using software or web sites to record information, ways of categorizing the information found, and alternate resources to fill in some of the blanks in our research. Using real world examples, Ken will walk through possible challenges and ways to overcome them.
