Never Give Up – Strategies for Taking Your Genealogy Research to the Next Level and Finding the Previously Unfindable"

with Marion Werle

 

Program:  This talk is a collection of tips to maximize your genealogical research. The speaker presents a number of research problems that required a creative approach to locate elusive people and their documents. She discusses online search strategies and indexing, names and name variations, the importance of geography, getting the most out of each record, revisiting old research, and the importance of persistence in achieving success.

SpeakerMarion Werle, a professional genealogist, began family history research 25 years ago, researching family from Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus, who settled in the US, Canada, UK, and Israel. She has been on the boards of JGSLA and JGSCV (Conejo Valley/Ventura County) and is a past president and founding member of the Latvia SIG (Special Interest Group). She is currently on the board of the revitalized JewishGen Latvia Research Division.   She has an ongoing interest in applying general genealogical methodology standards to Jewish research.
