Help! I have Genealogy Patrons-What do I do? Webcast Two: Digging into Genealogy Sources

For those library staff interested in going a little deeper into sources, Holly will look at the most used types of sources in genealogy and family history research, show what information can be gleaned from them, and provide examples along the way using a case study. She will give an overview of the following types of records: census, vital records (birth, marriage, and death), obituaries, cemetery, military, land, and probate records.

By the end of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the main types of sources used in genealogy research including census, vital records (birth, marriage, and death), obituaries, cemetery, military, land, and probate records
  • Use information that was obtained from such sources
  • Help patrons to access and use these records
