into the dumpster or give them to Goodwill or 
sell them in an Estate Sale? Come learn the 
steps you can take now to preserve your 
important research and your family artifacts.

Five Easy Steps to Documentation
If you find yourself asking “Why should I document sources?” or
“How do I document sources?” this class is for you. Documentation
is an action. Documenting where you got your information is
important even if you think no one is going to see the research
but you. Taking the time now to document where you got your
information will save you time later in your research. If you are like
me you work on one line and set it aside to work on another.
Without documenting (writing down) what you searched for
and where you found it (or didn’t find it) you inevitably will look
at some of the same sources again wasting time.

FamilySearch Family Tree
 
Many new possibilities have been developed in the last few years
for genealogists interested in recording their family trees online.
One of the biggest and most comprehensive ones is the wiki based
program called FamilySearch which just launched in November 2013.
It's really quite amazing. I have been doing genealogy for over fifty
years and I never wanted to put my information online until I was
introduced to this program. Now I'm hooked.
Come find out what it is all about and whether it might be something
you would be interested in. Some advanced information will also be
covered for those of you who are already registered in the program.
Q and A time will be included.
Presented by Lou Daly
