ABOUT THE MAIN PRESENTATION:
DAR.org is a great genealogical resource! This webinar is about the massive body of data now accessible on The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) website. The DAR Genealogical Records Committees (GRC) have indexed court records, marriage, death records, collected Bible Records and newly indexed thousands of applications for membership. Join this presentation to add another research methodology to your sleuthing tool set.
ABOUT MARILYN THOMSEN:
Marilyn Thomsen is an enthusiastic teacher and a confessed snoop, who loves helping uncover secrets hiding in family trees. She served an Internship at Georgia's National Archive Regional Center to complete her BA from BYU (’05) with a Family History focus on US Southern research. Twice she won BYU’s Family History of the Year Award researching and writing about her Pioneer ancestors. She has served as a Church Family History Service Missionary in the Salt Lake Family History Library and in the FamilySearch's Facebook Community. With her husband, Richard, she has traveled and covered the USA South, Isle of Man, Ireland, Denmark and England. Since 2019, Marilyn has been the editor of UVTAGG's newsletter, TAGGology. She loves painting watercolor portraits of her grandchildren.
ABOUT THE CLASS:
Good methodology, added to new AI digital indexes and images, make city directories an important source for US research. Marilyn will review where and how to locate city directories online and in repositories. Compare what is available on the major sites, Ancestry, FamilySearch, and MyHeritage. She will wring information out of city directories through a few good tales of resolved conundrums that might spark resolution of your own family mysteries.
