JGSCT Virtual Program, January 17, 2021, Free (and Almost Free) Genealogy #jgs-iajgs #announcements #events


Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut on Sunday, January 17, 2021, at 1:30 pm (Eastern) via webinar as we welcome Marian Burk Wood, JGSCT member and experienced genealogy speaker, blogger, and author of the best-selling genealogy book, “Planning a Future for Your Family’s Past.”

Marian's topic is Free (and Almost Free) Genealogy. Learn how to locate family history information online and through non-digital sources without spending a fortune. In addition to the big-name websites, see how to search for clues about ancestors by checking Linkpendium, Ancestor Hunt, state and county genealogy societies, local historians and libraries, and free newspaper sites

Learn tips for deciding when it pays to pay for a document, based on what's missing from your family tree, what your family has in hand, and how unique that document really is.

Active in genealogy research for more than two decades, Marian has presented programs at major genealogy conferences and all around New England. Marian blogs about family-history methodology and more at https://ClimbingMyFamilyTree.blogspot.com
