"Your Ancestor’s FAN Club: Using Cluster Research to Get Past Brick Walls."
Our ancestors were each surrounded by family, associates, and neighbors.
By researching them, we discover additional records pointing to our own ancestors.
"Crowdsourcing Your Brick Walls." Online genealogy forums provide an opportunity to ask others questions about brick wall problems.
Learn how to find and search through relevant mailing lists, message boards, and social networking groups,
and how to craft the perfect online research query.
"DNA 101: The Basics." Afraid to try DNA as a research tool because science seems intimidating?
Learn what DNA is, how DNA relates to genealogy, and what the different kinds of DNA tests are and who offers them.
"DNA 102: Understanding and Using Test Results." What do you do with DNA test results after you get them?
Learn how to interpret what they are telling you and how to make contact with others to figure out the relationships.
