Education in Australia
Wed, February 2 2022: 1:00 UTC
Tracking the movement of ancestors in Australia can be difficult without available census records.

Industrial or trade schools, universities, religious schools and others can also present information not found elsewhere.

Researching in Colonial New England
Thu, February 10 2022: 1:00 UTC
Researching ancestors who lived in colonial New England can be challenging. This webinar begins by tracing settlement patterns, setting the stage for understanding key records and where to find them. For the 17th century, many unique published resources exist to help the family researcher. During the colonial years, several conflicts such as King Philip’s War and the Seven Years War affected settlement and thus the surviving records. The 18th century culminated in the Revolutionary War, but also saw the continued growth of settlement and ultimately resources for the family historian.
