Get caught up in the World Wide Web! How can it work for your family research? Does everything come at a financial cost? How much of the information on the internet can a researcher believe? What about blogs and podcasts – are they of value? DNA is it the next big genealogical breakthrough? These and other issues related to using the internet for genealogy work will be explored. This workshop will be a mixture of instruction and hands on work with various websites and internet resources. Bring your laptop or tablet for this event!
