FINDING YOUR FAMILY IN CYBERSPACE: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO GENEALOGICAL WEB RESEARCH

Discover on-line genealogy and begin to research your family's history.  Using a surrogate relative, you’ll be introduced to the most productive and methodological way to search internet sites, both paid and free (Ancestry, My Heritage, and Family Search).  Look at other sites (Newspaper archives, FindAGRave). We’ll discuss brick and mortar free research centers like the Center for Jewish History and the New York Public Library.  And we’ll list some resources for European research and immigration records. You’ll have an opportunity to put theory to practice and launch your own search.  At the end of two hours, you’ll at least have one relative entered online, the beginnings of a family tree, or a good story.
Prerequisite: Comfortable with accessing the internet.
