Genealogy 101 - Manuscript Collections
By Melissa Barker
PLEASE NOTE THIS BEGINS AT 6:00 PM
Genealogists use all kinds of tools to help them with their genealogy research. One of the best tools to understand and use when working with Manuscript Collections is the Finding Aid. Archivists develop Finding Aids to help genealogists navigate through Manuscript Collections to find their ancestors. This presentation will help genealogists read, follow, and use a Finding Aid to find your ancestors in the records.
