This week I am doing two presentations. For the first one we all must get dressed, drive to the venue, and be ready to network. For the second one, no one will know what any of us is wearing or where you are sitting.

Your Anytime Library: Success in the Virtual Stacks
Rather research than count sheep or peruse books at any hour without breaking into the library? County, town, and family histories, record abstracts, and more await. Digitized, photocopied, excerpted, abstracted, and indexed books provide a strong likelihood of success via your computer. Add newspapers, documents, family trees, pension records, periodicals, and more to the accessible items and you might be housebound for days (months?). Finding books online might be as simple as typing the title in your favorite search engine and enclosing it in quotation marks. Your search engine is your best friend. The majority of the material listed in the handout for this lecture are links to FREE sites.

1930s and 1940s government programs put many to work. The Works Progress Administration workers created record transcriptions, abstracts, indexes plus courthouse, cemetery, church, & manuscript inventories. Much is now online.
A handout will be available shortly before the presentation. A link will be included in a reminder that will be sent the day before the session.
