Presentation Descriptions

9:00 a.m.

Internet Research for the Genealogist - Bob Heck     This presentation will assume that you are relatively new to doing genealogy research on the Internet. We will look at some of the basics starting with the many search engines available to you. We will learn how to make your searches more effective by using a few simple techniques. After finishing the basics we will dig into the many web sites and on-line databases available for free and learn how to use those techniques to find your ancestors. By the end of the presentation you will have the tools and knowledge to effectively advance your own reseang your immigrant ancestors. We will learn what those cryptic numbers mean on a passenger list and how they can lead you to naturalization documents of your ancestors.
