About this webinar

The desire to discover our ancestors continues to grow in popularity with the addition of online trees, genealogy TV shows, and the popularity of DNA tests. In this presentation, we will look at how to begin to create a family tree, learn what documents may provide information, and how and where to find them. Using a research plan, organization, and avoiding mistakes are also important habits for every beginner to understand and implement from day one. This presentation will give beginners the confidence they need to begin and move forward with building a correct family tree.

    Lots of great info for those new to family history, and even some tips for those who have been doing this for a long time.

    Incredible, even though I am well into my genealogy journey, this info was fantastic to remind me of so many things. It is important to reset, and go back to the beginning sometimes. Thank you so much!!

    Great presentation! I have younger family members I trying to enlist in family research. This is a nice, concise, well organized presentation to share with them. Even as an experienced researcher, the ideas were a great reinforcement of proper practice. Thank you !

    I was going to skip this webinar because, in my mind I was too experienced, but it was full of great ideas and new ways of doing things….along with reminders. Thanks to our presenter.

    An absolutely excellent presentation. I teach many people how to start and do their family histories and I was checking to see that I had covered all the basics. What I got today, was a reminder, that for people who don’t have a lot of money…there are certain times of FREE ACCESS. I will pass that along. Thanks.
