Morning Session – 9:30am to 11:30pm
“Ten Hidden Genealogy Sites”

Anyone researching their family trees have heard of familysearch.org, ancestry.com and rootsmagic.com. There are hundreds of other sites out there from many states. This class will introduce you to some of my favorite ones that you may not have heard of. Listings of these sites and others will be provided.

Lunch Break 11:30 – 12:30pm

An optional box lunch from Babes can be ordered if interested for $12. Feel free to bring your own lunch if you would like. If staying for both classes, you will have a great opportunity to visit with other genealogists during lunch.

Afternoon Session – 12:30pm – 2:30pm
“Free Newspaper Sites”

Newspapers can be a great source of information, but subscribing to them may become very expensive. This class will show you different newspapers sites that do not require a subscription. Handouts on how to get the most out of your searches will be provided.
