Delete Starting research in a new geographic location - Shared screen with speaker view
I have just gathered that doing this research today would make searching a lot easier for me in my German and Italian relatives! THANK YOU!
Yes! Me too, I feel more comfortable diving into German records.
I also look for a town history, usually just google the town name and include the word "history" or some variation. Then I look for specific sites within the results - archive.org, hathitrust, google books.
BJ, would you be able to email out the link to this recording? That would be great. Trying to write notes while you were talking and missed some of the actions you took. Thanks! Thanks for this class!
Just checked out the link page- It is GREAT and easy to find something, Thank you BJ!

I'm thinking that location research might also help me better understand why an ancestor chose to live somewhere and why they might have moved.

I have been having trouble locating where in Germany I need to research, so I will post for you Dianne Smith, when I figure out where in Germany I am looking. Today has helped greatly

YouTube is a great place to find videos for specific tasks. Ancestry has a youtube channel and you can also look for other known organizations. I like Dotto tech for tech stuff.
did you say you are doing a 1.00 webinar today?
no, she mentioned it was Mondays at 1:00
I should clarify - ancestry includes videos forsome of these kinds of tasks (adding images, downloading records, etc.).
