Tips & Tricks to Use - With so much information available to us today, it can be hard to know how to find what we're looking for, or how to take full advantage of it after we've found it. Discover an assortment of techniques that can help you search the internet more successfully, extract those useful genealogical nuggets from your documents, access what you've found after you’ve filed it, and evaluate your evidence. We'll look at tools for locating overlooked records, understanding codes in documents, recovering missing websites, finding evidence of name changes, and much more.

Pitfalls to Avoid - Genealogy is a great treasure hunt, but sometimes the clues are easy to misunderstand or to miss altogether. We’ll look at eight pitfalls that can get us into trouble, and discuss strategies for dodging these traps so they won’t keep you from reaching your goals.
