BFS webinar: Researching your family tree
September 11, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
People enjoy researching their family tree for many reasons. Sometimes this is related to posterity – sometimes due to a compulsion to solve puzzles across time and space. Regardless of the motivating factors, amateur detectives need to be aware that technology, in particular the Internet, has made researching your family tree that bit easier.
Once upon a time, researching your family tree meant a dedication to snail mail, a travel budget and a willingness to spend a lot of time in dark rooms poring over ancient archives. But this is no longer the case.
This session was designed to help you find useful websites that help you with your family history. We looked at websites that will help you begin your research, access digital records and generally point you in the right direction.
