Ancestry.com Workshop – Resources and Handouts

ancestry-logoThanks to the folks who attended our Ancestry.com workshop, last week. Despite a change of presenters, it seemed like everyone left happy and with a little more information about the use of this great research tool (and more). As promised, here are the handouts we made available at the workshop, as well as information about digitizing and sharing your own personal materials.

I love the Internet!

It is so amazing how the internet connects us in ways we never could have experienced even 10 years ago! We received the coolest email from the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center in Sandusky, Ohio about our site & they invited us to check out their own blog. I must say it is pretty sweet, with tons of great information accompanied by some great images. I’ve added it to the blogroll, so check it out!!!
