Privacy and Our Ancestors - free webinar by Thomas MacEntee now online

The recording of today's excellent webinar, Privacy and Our Ancestors, by Thomas MacEntee, is now available to view in our webinar archives. In additon to all of the resources Thomas taught, he also shed new light on privacy issues. One viewer commented:
Thanks for the genealogy resources. And for changing my view on the issue of privacy. I thought our privacy issues had changed with all the availability of data, not just on the internet, but other public records. In truth, with the advent of Facebook and Twitter, we are putting our OWN lives on record every day!  And public records have always been public -- that hasn't changed. I'm less worried about my own privacy now and have more resources to find my ancestors' public lives. Thanks!
Here's just a few of the resources Thomas talked about:
  • Marital discourse ads
  • Hotel arrivals
  • City directories
  • Court records
  • Speeding tickets
  • Freedom of Information Act
  • Google Alerts
  • Lots more...
