Feeling stuck? Have a difficult genealogy research problem? It may be time for a professional to assist. Join educator, author, and researcher, Karen Clifford, as she answers your questions and demonstrates how she solves genealogy cases. Seeing how someone else approaches a genealogy mystery can give you new ideas to apply for your own hunt.
The recording of today's webinar, "Researching with Karen!" by Karen Clifford is now available at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for a limited time. Lots of great comments:
- This was really pulling it all together-- showing how to access and analyze various sources to build up data more complete and accurate picture of our ancestors, how they fit together, where they were when, etc. I got a lot out of watching Karen resolve questions that I may not have now, but surely will have! She is so good at walking through how it's done that it illuminated a sometimes murky process. I know I'll be a better genealogist as a result.
- Very intriguing concept! Love that problems that were submitted were 'real people' research obstacles, and all the resources Karen mentioned.
- This was a really great webinar. I learned so much about research in general and about how to ananlyze the data and such. I consider myself to be a very knowledgeable researcher and I still learned a lot. Thank you!
