The last two sessions I attended were “Finding Blacks in Historic Newspapers,” and “Neat Tricks with Ancestry.com.” The concurrent sessions were “Writing Your Family History: From Idea to Manuscript,” “Back to Africa Via DNA Test Results,” “Planning a Research Trip,” and the documentary “Trail of Tears.”
Out of the historic newspapers session, I did come away with a new source to check out, PaperofRecord.com.
The Ancestry.com session had tips about “No-name Searches,” “Wild Card Searches,” and “First-Name Only Searches,” among others.
I’m leaving a few minutes early to go home and prepare for lunch tomorrow! A full report promised!
