2 webinars this week - Google Search Strategies by Lisa Louise Cooke & Ten Hidden Resources by Lisa Alzo

Join us this Wednesday AND Friday for two exciting genealogy webinars presented by two Lisas - Lisa Alzo and Lisa Louise Cooke. On Wednesday Lisa Alzo will present "Ten Hidden Resources Every Genealogist Should Know" and on Friday Lisa Louise Cooke will present "Google Search Strategies for Common Surnames."
Wednesday - Ten Hidden Resources Every Genealogist Should Know by Lisa Alzo
Genealogists are creatures of habit. We tend to research the familiar - using the most common, popular, or convenient databases or records. But there are plenty of other resources available - if you know where to look! In this Webinar, we'll review ten you might be missing!
Friday - Google Search Strategies for Common Surnames by Lisa Louise Cooke
Discover tips and tricks to find your ancestors with common surnames and surnames that double as common words in the English language with Google. Learn how to weed out irrelevant search results to save time and get to what you want faster. Then save and automate your searches to run for you! You’ll not only improve your searches, but also improve the chances that the information you post online will be found by other genealogists facilitating collaboration!
