“Your Anytime Library: Success in the Virtual Stacks.”

Florida State Genealogical Society Poolside Chat Webinar

September 18, 2014 at 8:00 to 9:00 pm
Presented by: Paula Stuart-Warren, CGSM, FMGS, FUGA

Paula tells us that researching rather than counting sheep is the way to go. We can peruse books at any hour without starting the car or breaking into the library. County, town, and family histories, record abstracts, and more await. Digitized, photocopied, excerpted, abstracted, OCRd, and indexed books provide a strong likelihood of success via your computer and that medium called the Internet. Add newspapers, documents, family trees, pension records, periodicals, and more to the accessible items. Good heavens! You may be housebound for days… or even months!

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
