Wednesday, 18 October 2017 @ 2pm
Augusta-Richmond County Public Library Main Branch 3rd Floor Computer Lab
With increased indexing and transcription of records, often linked to digitized images on free and commercial websites, searching for an individual or collecting references to everyone holding a particular surname is much easier now, isn’t it? Using a variety of sites to try to discover details about those elusive ancestors, creative searching is a must and this webinar will uncover some of the investigative methods needed as well as the more challenging transcriptions the genealogist has to work with, whilst still being enormously grateful that they are available to us online! Seating is limited so please call (706)826-1511 to reserve your spot!
