Neglected History by Megan Smolenyak - free webinar now online [Limited time -- until 13 August 2012]



When Megan Smoleynyak Smoleynyak talks, many people like to listen!

She recently did a webinar for LegacyFamilyTree titled Neglected History where she walks audience members through a handful of cases she has been working on to show how with a little patience, a healthy dose of curiosity, and knowledge of which records are available, any of us can ferret out the truth about our ancestors. She taught about:

·    Newspapers
·    City directories
·    Immigration records
·    Census records
·    Social Security Death Index
·    Cemetery records
·    and much more

Until 13 August 2012 you can view this webinar for FREE.  It runs 1 hour 9 minutes and can be accessed here.

If you caught the webinar live or have just watched the archived version – what one thing did she say that made you “perk up” and write a note about as you hadn’t really thought about looking at those records before or you were “reminded” how great they can be!  Let us know!
