This daylong workshop will explore genealogy resources and tools for researching and preserving family history. Suitable for all levels of genealogy research. Participation is limited to 60 people.

Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer, librarian, author, and archivist, will give the keynote address on evaluating online genealogical information and an additional presentation on how to ensure you are researching the correct person. Certified genealogist Melissa Johnson will give a presentation on advances in technology that have made research more effective, as well as techniques for developing research plans and organizing materials. Molecular biology and genetics researcher Anthony May will present on direct-to-consumer DNA testing and how to understand the results in the context of your family tree, including examples of how those with little knowledge of their family history can make big discoveries.
