Advanced Genealogy Research Techniques with Deborah Abbott

Ready to take your genealogy research to the next level? Join Special Collections for an informative program designed to help break down those brick walls. Register to receive a Zoom link.

Deborah Abbott presents two informative genealogy techniques in this session:

Cluster Genealogy: Finding Your Lost Ancestor – Using a case study, this session will introduce the importance of researching ancestors by using extended family members, friends, and community. Learn how to develop techniques and strategies that will help increase the chances of locating that long-lost ancestor.

Voices from the Past: Using Manuscript Collections – You have checked home sources, gathered vital records, read state and local histories, and analyzed the federal census records, and still find bare limbs on your family tree. Manuscript collections may be the answer to breaking your brick wall. Learn how and where to find manuscript collections and other sources that can create a gold mine of information pertaining to your ancestor.

This program will be presented on Zoom. You will receive an e-mail with the participation weblink one day before the program. If you are unable to attend or do not have
