My bank balance was thin and my patience with paying the faceless corporate entity was even thinner. Learn how I found free substitute records for many of the records I used to pay for at Ancestry.com, and how I discovered some new sites as well. My temporary "divorce" forced me to examine my genealogy from a different viewpoint with a fresh perspective. You, too, can recharge your genealogy, and save a few pennies as well.

Topic: Turning Genealogy Clues into Genealogy To Do’s
This webinar requires registration. Please find the Zoom registration information in the GSNOCC newsletter emailed to members or on the Members Only page.
Summary: Does your genealogy research get bogged down when you find new clues about an ancestor? Do you stop everything and chase after that BSO (“bright and shiny object”)? Learn how to increase your research efficiency and still remember that new information for later investigation.
Description: Participants will learn how to identify new clues in records, document new information and tuck it away for later research. In addition, we’ll focus on building better and more efficient research habits in order to stay on track and not get distracted by new clues.
