Zoom Virtual Meeting
Everyone is welcome to join at 9:30 AM with any and all questions.
January 24th topics are:
- One-Step Webpages : A Potpourri of Genealogical Search ToolThe One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 web based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last minute bidding on eBay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.
- Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman This lecture presents a case study using the One Step Webpages as well as other websites to develop a family history It illustrates how with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can be obtained. It also shows how to obtain records in spite of name misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.
January 31st topics are:
- The History of the Geography of New York City New York City has undergone numerous changes in its geographical boundaries. An understanding of these boundaries is important in order to know which archive to search in when looking for vital records.
- Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name-Index When the 1950 census is released in April 2022 it will not have a name index initially. So, finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead. Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches.
