 10:00 a.m.

  • Creating and Using Timelines to Solve Family History Mysteries" - Mike Provard

This class will explore different types of timelines that a genealogist can create that will organize the events in an ancestor’s life. Timelines help sort through all the bits and pieces that can become a jumbled mess, and show a view that may answer “brick-wall” questions, and open up new avenues of research. Three case studies will be shown that helped to solve various family history mysteries.

  • "The Big 4 U.S. Records:  Census, Vital, Probate, and Land" - Marilyn Markham 
  • "New Features in Ancestral Quest" - Gaylon Findlay

Ancestral Quest 14 was just released, with new features which include a research timeline, color coding, and improvements to the way AQ works with FamilySearch. Learn about all the new features, but especially how to prepare the records of your ancestors in new.FamilySearch so they will be ready for the Family Tree.

Family Tree is replacing new FamilySearch. Come and see what’s new and what’s different. We will look at the differences in Family Tree and compare the advantages. We will answer questions like, can I edit other people’s contributions, what about relationships, and will sourcing be better?


 11:00 a.m.

  • "Hitting It Out of the Park with Ancestry.com" - Biz Chase

Some of the Ancestry topics we will touch upon in this class include: Basic search techniques for Ancestry databases, Using the learning center, Attaching personal family documents and photos to Ancestry family trees, Using Family Tree Maker in conjunction with your Ancestry family tree, Why do I care about source information? and much more. 

  • "The FamilySearch Wiki: Where Your Search for Your Ancestors Should Begin and End" - Dennis Knox
