Researching in Libraries and Archives: the Do's and Don'ts

This webinar will instruct the genealogist on how to prepare to do research in any repository. Planning ahead and knowing what the repository offers will help the genealogist be more successful in their genealogy research.
Vertical Files: What Are They and How to Use Them
Vertical Files, what are they and how can they benefit the genealogist? This webinar will help the researcher understand exactly what Vertical Files are and how to locate them at local repositories. This record source is “like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.”
It's Not All Online: Researching in Archives
