by Marsha Kreucher
 

Using a case study of the search through her husband's lost families 

Ms. Kreucher will provide practical advice on available resources

to use the information available for adoptions from

Canada to the Unites States.

Turning Genealogy Clues into Genealogy To Do's 
by Thomas MacEntee, of Genealogy Bargains
 
Does your genealogy research get bogged down when you find new clues 
about an ancestor? Do you stop everything and chase after that
BSO (“bright and shiny object”)? Learn how to increase your research efficiency
and still remember that new information for later investigation.
 
Participants will learn how to identify new clues in records, document new information and tuck it away for later research. In addition, we’ll focus on building better and more efficient research habits in order to stay on track and not get distracted by new clues.
 
The meeting of the society will be via GoToWebinar,
a meeting platform that will allow us to meet virtually.
