This workshop, sponsored by the RI Daughters of the American Revolution, will concentrate on the features of numerous websites that are aids in doing genealogical research. Most often used Ancestry.com has many components that are under-utilized, as well as attributes that provide the ability to communicate with yet unknown family members who may also be working on your family tree. We will explore both paid sites and free sites, and sites that are devoted to specific locales such as Ireland research, or Canadian research. There are sites that contain military records, naturalization records, state censuses, and sites that may have images of original documents. Every day, there are more and more records being placed on the internet. Let’s find them.
Participants may bring a laptop, although it is not a pre-requisite to participating in the class.
In order to foster personalized attention, this class will be limited to 20 individuals. There is a $20 fee to participate. To reserve space, please call Susan Cline at (401) 539-2485.
