Santa Cruz Jewish Genealogy Society invites you to
The Power of the Catalog - Unindexed Records and How to Find Them
Speaker: Risa Daitzman Heywood. Professional genealogist
Sunday, November 14- 1 pm Pacific Time Zone/4 pm Eastern
Free to Members, $5.00 to Guests
Did you know that over 75% of the records available on FamilySearch cannot be accessed by a simple records search? Did you know that Ancestry has record collections that are available to browse but that cannot be searched because they are not yet indexed? While digitizing records is relatively fast and inexpensive, indexing those records is much costlier. Many online repositories have made these records available for browsing but working with them can be a challenge. This presentation will show you how to find and use these unindexed records to greatly enhance your research.
