Other Resources to Help with Your Search
Presented by Ruth Blair, PLCGS, The
A good deal of
research can be done online, and many believe this is
all we need, but only about 1% of genealogical data has
been digitized and been made available on the Internet.
Great strides are being taken to get more data online,
but it is a costly process and sometimes what is
available is only a small reference to a certain record
group, and not the actual image. Libraries and archives
are still the main sources of information for the
genealogical researcher, especially when you want to dig
deeper. Ruth Blair will present case studies using such
resources. She is a professional genealogist for Blair
Archival Research, who has conducted family history
research for over 25 years in Canada, Ireland, England,
Scotland, United States, Australia and New Zealand. Ruth
has lectured extensively to historical societies,
libraries, and for OGS and its branches, as well as
authoring "The Passionate Genealogist" blog.
