October 14, 2018 
   1:00 PM 
   Jewish Research with 
 Francie Kennedy 
There is far more to than just the Search Box! Getting the most out of the largest free genealogy site in the world requires using all parts of the site, many of which are not obvious at first click, and not searchable with the initial Search Box. With a focus on Jewish family records, Francie will give us a guided tour of the nooks and crannies of the site, and show us how to find all of the digitized books and records. 
This talk also introduces us to the FamilySearch Research Wiki, the world's greatest how-to guide for genealogy. Spending time learning about can reward us with a surprising amount of information when we learn to use every aspect of this site.

   Francie Kennedy is passionate about microhistory, and fond of maps and old county histories. She often stays up late collecting resources for her students in Beginning Methodology classes, and integrating these resources in new ways. Francie is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and speaks to national and reginal conferences including Rootstech and Jamboree on a variety of topics ranging from Google to geography.
