Preparing for tonight’s Legacy Family Tree Webinar. I’m presenting, “The Case of the Broken Link.” We will go over the technical makeup of URLs using some genealogical examples. What do you do when your bookmarks and source citations break? How can you tidy up an unwieldy link? We will cover a lot in a short one hour webinar.
I’m in Tulsa this morning. We’ve got a full room already and more are showing up. What a nice facility, right down to the purple chairs!! We start today with A Guided Tour to Cyndi’s List and then The Hidden Web: Digging Deeper. This afternoon is Building a Digital Research Plan and Remedies for Copy & Paste Genealogy. It’s going to be a fun day!
I'm looking forward to teaching this course this summer in Amherst, New York. Join me at GRIP!
Cyndi Ingle is teaching a week-long course on how to get organized on your own computer and how to search the internet efficiently to find what you want.

"You absolutely DO NOT want to miss this week's episode of BlackProGen LIVE. You'll hear directly from Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Creek Freedmen who have verified their link to those nations through genealogy and family history research. It's VERY rare that you get an opportunity to hear about the history of Freedmen of these nations directly from Freedmen. Tune in LIVE this Wednesday, November 15 at 6pm/8pm/9pm at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftcmhzZ0gJY"

If you’re like me, you anxiously await the weekly email from FamilySearch that lists all the new historical records added to their online collection. When Famil...ySearch recently announced the discontinuation of lending microfilms to Family History Centers, I caught mention that all films that had been lent in the past few years were now digitized. Now, I know I’ve rented my share of films and I swear I haven’t seen any of those records come through in the weekly email. [ 661 more words ]
