Introduction to Genealogy Resources is aimed at reference staff with little or no experience in genealogy, and will introduce online tools for assisting patrons with family history research. The goal of the webinar is to give students confidence and skill in assisting family history researchers. The class will outline basic sources and strategies. Topics covered will include censuses, vital records, immigration records, military research and a variety of other basic genealogy sources. The emphasis is on U.S. resources, but major foreign sources will be identified.
