Our May meeting will feature Sherri Hessick who will discuss Secrets to Successful Searches on Ancestry.com. Ancestry is the most popular website for genealogy research. However, the sheer amount of data can make searching for your ancestors seem daunting. This session will help you navigate the records more efficiently and offer suggestions for maximizing your online research experience.
