10:10 AM - Mysterious Relatives

Many researchers encounter mysterious persons living in the household of a relative; or a letter signed by an unknown 'cousin.' As a researcher, it is important to investigate and understand the relationship between these strangers and your person of interest. This lecture will discuss cluster research methodology.

 

11:20 AM - Getting the Most Bang for Your Buck Out of the Library

Time and money are a researcher's most precious commodities. Don't waste valuable library time on ordinary collections and databases when you are sitting on a gold mine of unique resources! Learn to maximize your experience at your local and destination libraries.

 

Handouts, when available, are in Member's Only on the Speaker Handouts page.
