Presenter: Banai Lynn Feldstein
Now is a great time to be a genealogist. In the past, genealogists had to sift through microfilm or old books, mostly in local archives, or snail mail requests for records and hope for replies. But now, there are so many web sites with indexes and record images that a lot of research can be done without ever leaving your home. But even with such easy access, sometimes the records are still elusive. What happens if your ancestor’s name was spelled wrong? What if the handwriting was so bad that the indexer couldn’t read it? What if the indexer just got it wrong? With her experience as a professional genealogist finding elusive records, and her computer programming experience, Banai will teach you some of the techniques she uses to try to find the elusive records.
