11:00 AM - Funeral Homes and Family History

Most genealogists know to look in a cemetery to find their ancestors, but what about the funeral home? Funeral home records can provide loads of genealogically rich information you can't find anywhere else. This presentation teaches participants what types of records funeral homes make and how to locate these records. We'll use real-life examples of how clues from funeral home records can help us learn more about our ancestors.


12:30 PM - Living on Cloud 9: Genealogy Beyond the Binder

We live in a fast-paced, digital, on-the-go world. Genealogy is no different. Imagine being able to bring all of your research files with you on every trip. Using cloud-based storage allows the genealogical researcher to do just that! Anywhere. Anytime. This course will compare several different cloud-based storage services as well as look at tips on how to organize digital files to minimize space and find documents faster.
