Research Notes 2020-4-16

Research Notes masthead

The CoronaVirus may have put a halt to a lot of genealogical conferences and meetings, but thanks to today’s digital technology we can get together online to share research tips, ask questions and discover useful resources. For example, a Tumblr blog and MeWe group were created to support a North Florida Conference presentation on affordable research resources. Now they are both available to anyone wanting to learn more about their ancestors without going broke.

The Research Resource Center group at MeWe.com (https://mewe.com/join/researchresourcecenter) and the Affordable Research blog on Tumblr (https://affordable-research.tumblr.com) are full of useful resources with more added regularly. Both are freely accessible, but you will need to create an account to access MeWe.com.

We don’t know yet if the library will be available for our March meeting. As soon as we hear from them, we will let you know.

 

From Dick Eastman . . .

“The Society of Genealogists and FamilySearch are about to start work on a programme of digitization of some 9000 family history books and over 5000 genealogy pamphlets, offprints and unpublished tracts from the Society of Genealogists’ extensive genealogy library.”

 

Are you familiar with The Family History Guide? Now might be a good time to take a look. Whether you’re just beginning or you’ve been at it a while, doing family history can be easier. The Family History Guide helps you choose a path you’re interested in, with tools to help you find the information you need.
