About this webinar

What if I told you there was an easy way to identify every published book, article or essay, and every unpublished manuscript pertaining to your ancestor’s home town, or occupation, or religious group? Would you be interested? Of course you would. But very few genealogists ever use it. The answer: Academic Theses. This mini-class will show you how to find academic theses that will turbo-charge your family history research.

    Wow! You have just shared the most valuable tool in my research kit since DNA hit the scene. At 80, some of my outdated methods just haven’t given me the answers I wanted about a specific individual ancestor in a specific place. This of course is frustrating. Now I have a wide open road filled with hope.
