Advanced Research Techniques
Saturday, November 11 at 1 p.m. - Dayton Metro Library, Community Room 2-B, 215 E. Third Street, Dayton
This presentation includes information, tips and tricks including specific search strategies that will help you raise your researching ability to a new level. Research begins with having a specific goal to solve. Dana Palmer begins with the importance of this concept and elaborates on core search strategies, common places to find clues and a very helpful list of tips and tricks. From that beginning she targets specific search strategies for Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org, state and local archives, cemeteries, newspapers, and living people. A special section on Google search tricks is included to help yield the best search results. The presentation concludes with a discussion on search engines and the advantages of using more than one. A detailed handout of the presentation will be available. An additional 12-page handout for Online State Resources and their URLs will be made available electronically for attendees. Dana says, “These are some of my other favorite genealogy state archives and websites sites. These are sites at the state level. Make sure you check the US GenWeb and Family Search Wiki for local genealogical and histories societies too. Each has their own record collections, which are not the same.”
