Webinar Shorts are a new bonus feature for members at Legacy Family Tree Webinars that provide you with genealogy classes in 20 minutes or less. Enjoy this new Webinar Short "What’s That Name? Tips for Finding Nicknames, Spelling Variants and Mangled Surnames" by Janice Nickerson.
Webinar Short Description
Names are a genealogist’s bread and butter. But how do you find your ancestors when they didn’t “go by” their proper names, or clerks mangled their names in the records or the transcriber couldn’t read the enumerator’s handwriting? These tips might help!
