New Bonus Webinar - Facial Recognition Tools for the Genealogist by Maureen Taylor

Have you ever wanted to compare two photos who you think are the same person? Maybe one photo was taken in early adulthood and the other late in life. Determining for sure who is in a photo can be tricky. In this webinar Maureen Taylor takes you on a tour of facial recognition tools that can help identify your ancestors.

We're working hard to give our webinar subscribers the educational classes they need to maximize their genealogical research! This new class is a bonus webinar for the webinar library. The webinar previews are always free.

Facial Recognition Tools for the Genealogist

Television crime shows make facial recognition software look flawless. In fact, it’s less than perfect. This lecture explores the myths and realities of facial recognition software including how it works and when it works best. Paying attention to facial details is just one step in determining if you have two photos of the same person. It’s about paying attention to the evidence in the picture and the clues in your family history too.
