1:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Session 1-June 13 from 1:30-4:00 OR Session 2-June 20 from 1:30-4:00

Who: Anyone who can benefit from guided practice searching common land records websites for your land-owning ancestors. We will explore some general land records websites and then spend the rest of the time letting you search with my one-on-one help when needed.

What you will need: Your own internet-able computer, laptop, tablet, phone or whatever you use to do genealogy research. AND your passwords to any gen websites you usually use. Maybe a pencil and note paper…also your best can-do smile!

Why: After my presentation on Land Records for the April Seminar, I was asked if I would be willing to do a workshop as a follow up to practice and apply the information tailored to a member’s own needs.

Cost: Free…a benefit provided by your local EWGS chapter!

How-to sign-up: Email Betty directly at State which day you want. There are only 10 slots per day. I will add a wait list of 3 for each day just in case a position opens.

Other details: Those confirmed for the workshop will receive an email from me with the door code for the HIVE a few days before the workshop.
