Genealogical Society of Broward County: Sidestep Genealogy
A webinar presentation by George G Morgan. Morgan is president of Aha! Seminars and is an avid genealogist. He has presented and written widely on many aspects of genealogy.
Brick wall research blocks are inevitable. We strive to start with ourselves and work backwards, but sometimes there are impediments that stop us in our tracks. It is then that we must use our most creative research skills, and it is essential that we move to other family members. That means researching our ancestors' siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, and the collateral lines with which they are connected.
Sidestep Genealogy means researching these alternative individuals, their records, the places that they lived, and other resources.
This webinar will make you stop and think about what alternative research paths you might use, and point you to new resources you may never have considered.
The Genealogical Society of Broward County's monthly meeting is held at the Alvin Sherman Library.
The program begins at 2:00 pm after the GSBC open lab (12, noon - 2 p.m.) and the Genealogical Society of Broward County business meeting.
Sponsored by the Genealogical Society of Broward County.
