The North Carolina and the Moore County Genealogical Societies will present Gathering, Organizing, and Sharing Your Family History on Saturday, 13 August 2011, at the Hampton Inn-Southern Pines/Pinehurst in Aberdeen, North Carolina.
1. Where Do I Go From Here?
Family historians who have exhausted the usual starting places may need to seek clues in printed or online sources. These clues can guide researchers to such original governmental records as military service, property holdings, taxes, offices held, court cases, and more.
2. Our National Treasure: The Library of Congress
The Library of Congress website is chock-full of genealogical gems. This lecture explores the myriad sources available online. Attendees will learn how to use the various search features on the website to winnow results.
3. Digitizing Your Way to Organization
How do we organize those piles of notes and boxes of paper? Learn how organizing records can be easy if we know some basic information about digitizing and use simple ways to electronically file our research.
4. Sharing Your Family History
Will your many years of genealogical research end up in a trash bin when you’re gone? Not if you organize it, even a small piece at a time, and share it with others now. This session demonstrates simple ways genealogists can share the stories they uncover.
