Where do we come from? Researching our family history is becoming more popular with subscription services such as Ancestry.com and 23andMe ancestry kits.

At the conclusion of webinar, participants will be able to:

Generate a list of geographic specific resources
Locate hidden resources buried in databases
Interpret Census records
Evaluate digital resources
Record your research
