About this webinar

Geoff's at it again – he recently discovered an obituary which appears to be the key to unlocking the mystery of one of his ancestral families. In fact, he believes he will finally crack the case of what happened to three of Martin Brown's daughters (female ancestors – so hard to track sometimes aren't they!). He's going to wait and take the next step in front of a live webinar audience.

 

You are invited to watch as he first demonstrates how to scan the obituary, shows where to save the digital image on his hard drive, sets up the source clipboard, and evaluates and adds the new information to his real, personal Legacy family file. He will next come up with his research plan, add it to Legacy's To Do List, and begin the unscripted, unrehearsed research – live! You will probably also learn about census searching techniques (and its data entry), searching the Social Security Death Index and other online databases and much more. With this kind of instruction, you will get a peek inside the mind of a professional researcher that may give you some new ideas or solidify the research techniques you have developed.
