UGA Virtual Chapter: "Where are the Records on FamilySearch," by James Tanner, April 19th 7pm

Join us Thursday, April 19th, 2018 at 7pm MDT for the UGA Virtual Chapter webinar, "Where are the Records on FamilySearch," by James Tanner.  This webinar is free and open to the public.  Please pre-register at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/499687742914964737

There is a wealth of historical records on the FamilySearch website and not all are accessible from the main search box.  Many have not yet been indexed, so can't be found by just typing in a name or location.  This presentation will discuss the records that are on FamilySearch, how they get there, and how to find them.  Many people will be surprised at the breadth of items there and how to find them.

James Tanner is a popular genealogy speaker and a prolific genealogy blogger.  He is a retired attorney from Arizona and has been interested in genealogy for many years.  His genealogy blogs are http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com/ and http://rejoiceandbeexceedingglad.blogspot.com/  He and his wife Ann currently volunteer at the the Maryland State Archives where they are digitizing archival records for FamilySearch.  They previously served as volunteers in the Genealogy Library at Brigham Young University, where they taught many classes and recorded many webinars that are posted on the BYU Genealogy Library YouTube channel.

The UGA Virtual Chapter meets online the third Thursday evening of each month, except December.  Free to the public, you can register for the live presentation by clicking on the link above.  Archived videos of these presentations are available to UGA members on the organization's website.  If you would like to join the UGA for only $35 per year, go to https://ugagenealogy.org/index.php
