Public Member Trees on Ancestry: Exploring, Evaluating, and Adding Value

If you have a question about this event, Please contact us

When

From: 9/22/2018 10:00 AM

To: 9/22/2018 11:00 AM

Everyone uses Ancestry’s Public Member Trees. They index millions of names; and while sometimes wrong, they can provide a wealth of valuable clues. How do you know if the information is right? This talk discusses some strategies for researching the trees and assessing whether the proposed information is correct. It will also discuss ways that Ancestry users can add value to their own trees, making them more valuable to your own research and to others. To register for this free event, call 260-421-1225 or send an email.
