Chutes & Ladders: Innovative Approaches to Genealogy

Description:
Game on, genealogists! Are you eager to connect the dots, score
points and populate the branches of your family tree? In this
interactive lecture you’ll learn how to navigate your genealogical
game-board using imaginative strategies and unusual databases.
Climb ladders to scale brick walls by cleverly manipulating
Google, Facebook, Geni, ProQuest Fundrace, and Zabasearch.
Locate M.I.A. relatives using real estate and bank records. Access
overseas libraries and auction sites. Go directly to jail to uncover a
family scandal! Clues abound if you know where to look. Get out
your detective’s notepad and practice your powers of deduction to
complete your ancestral jigsaw puzzle. This talk will be more
illuminating (and fun) than a barrel of monkeys. Everybody wins!
