Join us this Wednesday AND Friday for two exciting genealogy webinars presented by two Toms - Tom Kemp and Thomas MacEntee.

Wednesday - New Search Options Let You Target Obituaries, Photos, Passenger Lists, Births, Marriagse, and More by Tom Kemp
Are you getting the most out of the old newspapers on GenealogyBank.com? GenBank has released a series of targeted search pages that let you focus your searches on the type of articles that you need - saving you time and improving your search results. For example, there are search pages just for Probate Records, Marriage Announcements or even photographs & images. See how these targeted searches let you cut through the more than 1.4 billion records to accurately pinpoint your searches to just the material you are looking for.
Friday - Next Exit: Your New Jersey Ancestors by Thomas MacEntee
Participants will learn the basics of researching their New Jersey ancestors starting with the early history as part of the New Netherlands colony to the present-day. Does the search for your New Jersey ancestors often take you to a dead end? What are the best strategies for Garden State research and which record sets are available? We’ll cover the history of New Jersey and review a variety of resources and strategies to get you on the route to success!
