From the Library – NEXT THURSDAY (6/23/22): IPL Genealogy Group: Beefing Up An Ancestor’s Timeline

Jeanette Sheliga is a Genealogy Lecturer from Western New York, and she will deliver another presentation for the IPL Genealogy Group on Thursday, June 23, at 7:00 PM.

So often there are unanswered questions and brick walls surrounding a person on your family tree. In Beefing Up An Ancestor’s Timeline, we’ll focus on techniques and good practices on how to obtain and organize all the information that you can locate on a person and, hopefully, help to answer your questions and break through those brick walls. Topics will include home sources, online family trees, accepting hints, online collections, local repositories, and much more.

Beefing Up An Ancestor’s Timeline is an online presentation that will be offered through Zoom. If you’d like to attend, please register now through our Event Calendar. An email with the login information for the Zoom meeting will be sent out before the presentation begins.
