WMGS February Monthly Meeting

Wednesday, February 6 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Finer Points of FamilySearch: Six ways to Jumpstart Your 2019 Research  

Pat Richley-Erickson, AKA DearMYRTLE, will be presenting for us during our February 6th meeting. Pat is the author of the award-winning DearMYRTLE Genealogy Blog, which is consistently among the top 5 family history blogs internationally, where her focus is on beginning genealogy topics. She also hosts several weekly hangouts including Mondays with Myrt, Wacky Wednesday and moderates more intense study groups including Beginning Genealogy, Mastering Genealogical Proof, The Written Conclusion, and Genealogy and the Law.
Of the 100’s of on-line genealogy search sites, few rise to the top of the list. Imagine having access to a premier research website that is consistently rated as one of the best that is also FREE to use! Welcome to FamilySearch.org. In a constant state of being updated with new collections of historical records, Family Search is the “go-to” site for thousands of family researchers around the world.
DearMYRTLE will be coming to WMGS via a remote webinar from her home and offices near Salt Lake City, Utah. She will share her deep knowledge of the website and how to use it effectively. Finding the records that you need and doing it in a logical, step-by-step manner can be a huge time saver. WMGS is very fortunate to be able to bring her to our virtual “doorstep” and take advantage of her broad and deep experience.
