Using Ancestry.com Like a Pro with Crista Cowan
Join Crista Cowan, Barefoot Genealogist, for an in-depth look at Ancestry.com. Crista is a much sought after speaker, and their specialist in Jewish research. She will share her favorite tips for searching through more than 15 billion online records to find the records you need and she will preview some upcoming changes to the site. Crista will demonstrate other aspects of the website and will answer your questions. She will highlight the online resources available to you to continue your genealogy education.
Crista was raised in Washington County. Some of you may remember her daylong sold out seminar with us a few years back. She has been with Ancestry.com since 2004; her involvement in family history, however, reaches all the way back to childhood. You may watch her live show, The Barefoot Genealogist, every Tuesday at 10:00 AM (Pacific) on http://livestream.com/ancestry.
Please come early if you would like help from other genealogists.
Cost: The program is free to 2014 JGSO members. We request a $5 contribution from non-members. That fee can be applied to a membership should you decide to join JGSO at this meeting.
