Join us this Wednesday AND Friday for two exciting genealogy webinars presented by two of genealogy's finest - Michael Hait and Barbara Renick. On Wednesday Michael Hait will present "An Overview of Maryland Genealogy" and on Friday Barbara Renick will present "Top Ten Techniques for Finding More in Library Catalogs."
Wednesday - Research in the Old Line State: An Overview of Maryland Genealogy by Michael Hait
Established in 1634, Maryland has a long and storied history. In this presentation, you will learn about the major repositories in Maryland, the common record groups, and techniques for researching in Baltimore city as well as the rest of the state.
Friday - Top Ten Techniques for Finding More in Library Catalogs by Barbara Renick
Most genealogists go to library Web sites, find the online catalog, make a search using that catalog's basic search features, and assume they have found everything. Not only are there many ways to use online library catalogs for genealogical research, but such sites often provide access to a wide variety of additional resources and databases.
