This past week we focused on efficient ways to explore both Family Search and Ancestry. Using a narrow approach (restricting searches to census, vital records or a specific state or country) rather than a "global search" will produce better results. Knowing more about the database, using various forms of names and being critical of online family trees will also help in your research.
This is the final week to register for the Pinal County Genealogy Workshop scheduled for January 28 for the low price of $20. If you don't get the registration postmarked by January 14, the cost rises to $25. www.pinalctyazgen.com.
