Coming to America: Finding Your Ancestor’s Arrival Records on Ancestry.com - Immigration is an important part of our nation’s history and of your personal family history. Passenger arrival records are much more than lists of names. Finding and using these records effectively will lead to intriguing family stories and provide clues for further research.
Common Surnames: Finding Your Smiths – Finding common names in your family tree is almost inevitable. This presentation is loaded with tips for distinguishing one individual or family from others with same last name.
Hidden Treasures at Ancestry.com- Beyond the traditional records that yield essential names, dates and places, you can often get a better understanding of your ancestors from some of the lesser-used records that don’t rise to the surface in a general search. From Almshouse and Agricultural schedules and fraternal and ethnic collections to a vast assortment of military records, great details can be found in the billions of records at Ancestry.com. This presentation highlights some of the best and most unusual collections, how to find them and the wonderful clues in them that will lead to other records.
