Wednesday night - Tracking Migration Using the Big 4 U.S. Record Sources by Mary Hill
Tracking migration in the United States involves using census, vital, land, and probate records, the bread and butter of American research. Get an overview of each of these types of records; learn where to find them, and how to use them effectively to track migration.

Friday afternoon - Expanding Your Research from a Single Fact by Marian Pierre-Louis
We all have some ancestors for whom we have very little information. Perhaps we have a death date or a marriage date and nothing else. In this webinar Marian Pierre-Louis shows you how to expand your research from as little as one single fact. She will use multiple examples to show how even the slightest information can lead to new clues and new resources for your research.
