Getting the Most Out of Online Genealogy Sources, presented by Kim Smeenk of the Washington State Library, June 4, 2013, 9:00 AM
Genealogy continues to be a hot topic in libraries. And as more and more materials become available online, including digitized images of primary sources, the amount of information can be overwhelming, even for the most dedicated family historian. Join Kim Smeenk, of the Washington State Library, as she conducts a tour of web sites that will help you guide your patrons to valuable sources for family history such as vital records and historic newspapers. Kim will also share some tips that will help your patrons get the most out of searching two of the top genealogy web sites, Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org.
