About this webinar

What if you could consult with genealogical experts each time your work slows? Together you could explore options for new paths of discovery. The right approach to a literature review allows you to do that. Other experts have encountered the same challenges that you do, and they have written about them even if not overtly. These challenges could range from beginning work in a new geography to parrying with a difficult brick wall. Learn how to conduct a targeted literature review, cull the information you need, and advance your research. A case study on the use of the FAN Club will highlight the methodology.

    This terrific presentation has really stretched my mind about ways to find resources for and additional approaches to my most challenging research questions. I support the need for much fuller search capabilities in the NGSQ and other publications and resources.

    Excellent interactive presentation with a fresh approach to learning methodologies for solving genealogical brick walls. A process for identifying keywords and searching in professional journals for examples that illustrate solutions to similar problems.
