George Morgan & Drew Smith, the Genealogy Guys, will be discussing two important genealogy subjects at the Headquarters Branch on December 8, 2018.
George will discuss Dissect Obituaries for New Clues
Obituaries are miniature biographies for the deceased. The writers were compelled to compress as much information into a small amount of text. Your job is to carefully analyze the content of the death notice, obituary, and/or funeral notice and look for clues. This lecture presents a methodology for dissecting an obituary, determining what information is provided or inferred, identifying record types that may be available, where those records are located, and how to access them.
Drew will discuss Crowdsourcing Your Brick Walls.
Online genealogy forums provide an opportunity to ask others questions about brick wall problems. Learn how to find and search through relevant mailing lists, message boards, and social networking groups, and how to craft the perfect online research query
