Adding Historical Context to Your Ancestor's Life
What I learned from my first DNA experience, and what's next

You've briefly learned about the 2000+ scholarly journals available at JSTOR in previous webinars by Gena Philibert-Ortega, Lisa Alzo, and Judy Wight, and you've asked us to provide a full-length webinar to learn more about this incredible resource. Just this morning we got together with the senior marketing director of JSTOR and recorded the class just for you! It's now available in the webinar library - for free for anyone to watch at their leisure.
