Successful Family History Workshops

Just completed four weeks of Family History Workshops.  Using the title of the popular TV show, "Who Do You Think You Are?" We helped people learn how they to can discover WHO they are and WHERE they came from. 

As a follow up to these workshops, several members of the Brown County Genealogy Society will begin assisting people interested in researching their family history at the Brown County Public Library every Tuesday from 1-3pm.

This BLOG will also begin featuring a weekly series called, "52 Weeks to Better Genealogy" since I am starting this a little late, we will have a few weeks with multiple features until I get caught up:)

Technology is changing the way we conduct genealogical research, 10 years ago one would have had  to travel 100's of miles in search of an elusive ancestor; today we can practically GOOGLE a name and a year, and come up with birth records, marriage records, death records, photographs of tombstones, and a list of 48 'cousins' who are looking for you.

Ok, well, it may not be THAT easy, but the process is definitely changing.

Join me as a share new resources, research practices, and technology available to help your family research.
