Western Michigan Genealogical Society - Literally Virtual Got Ancestors?!
Saturday, October 10
Western Michigan Genealogical Society - Literally Virtual Got Ancestors?!  (Society Events)
9:00 am to 3:30 pm
Webinar
So – what a year 2020 has been so far! Many events cancelled, many other events changed somehow.
 
This year’s Got Ancestors?! 2020 Seminar is no different. We have switched it to a Virtual Seminar. Our speaker, Lisa Louise Cooke, will be at her home in Texas, and all the attendees will be at their homes where ever they live. Or maybe you’ll be sitting in your car because you have lousy internet connectivity at your home.
 
In any case, we’re pleased to bring Lisa Louise Cooke to you for a day of (virtual) presentations and learning.
  • How to Reopen and Work a Genealogical Cold Case
  • The Genealogist’s Google Search Methodology for 2020
  • How to Create Exciting Interactive Family History Tours with Google Earth
  • Inspiring Ways to Capture the Interest of the Non-Genealogists in Your Family
