Wednesday - Using Court Records to Tell the Story of Your Ancestors' Lives by Judy Russell
Early court records give us evidence to prove who our ancestors were. But they’re even more wonderful in helping us understand how our ancestors lived. Learn how to use court records to add richness and depth to help tell your family’s story.

Friday - Ancestry Trees Can Jump Start Your Research by DearMYRTLE
Find out why Ol' Myrt gave up the notion to avoid sharing her family tree online. Secret: It's all about collaboration. This webinar guides participants through the process of creating a GEDCOM file in the Legacy Family Tree software, uploading the file to, and looking for "reasonable" matches using Ancestry's shaking leaf. We then focus on deeper searches using using the "magnifying glass" and analysis of reliability of matches.
