Think Like an Archivist on Saturday in San Diego

Looking forward to presenting Think Like an Archivist on Saturday in San Diego. The Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego is a great organization and I’m always happy to talk about primary source research.

Learn about locating genealogical materials held in manuscript and photographic collections in libraries and archives worldwide, using online archival portals and digital finding aids. Discover where family records are located in digital finding aids; effective search terms and strategies; specific URLs for institutional, regional, and worldwide archival portals and gateways; and how to search once across multiple institutions to locate family history records.

This is a great group of dedicated genealogists and I look forward to being with them again. Don’t miss Think Like an Archivist on Saturday in San Diego.
