BLM, Fold3, and Research Process Webinars

We had scheduling challenges with my brick wall webinars (the BLM site was not responding during our presentation and I had a family emergency on 12 March). But we are back and on track. If you already registered and paid, you do not need to do so again--you are on the list.

Using the Bureau of Land Management Site-Wednesday 18 March 2015-7:00 pm Central

This presentation discusses search strategies for the Bureau of Land Management website--which hosts a database of federal land patent extracts and images. It will include a brief discussion of legal land descriptions in federal land states before discussing the several ways the site can be searched and queried. The presentation will conclude with several specific examples and how the site was queried for additional information. $6 includes registration and handout.

Navigating Fold3.com-Wednesday 18 March 2015--8:30 pm Central

Frustrated with finding databases and people on Fold3.com? This presentation will discuss search techniques for determining what Fold3.com has, what it doesn't and how to search the entire site and specific databases for individuals of interest. $6 includes registration and handout.

Is Your Process the Problem?-Thursday 19 March 2015--7:00 Central

Is your genealogical research process part of your problem? We will look at ways to organize your search, your problems, and your results in order to make the most effective use of your genealogical and financial resources. Geared towards beginning and intermediate researchers. $6 includes registration and handout.


If you already registered for these at the original time and cannot attend, you will get a complimentary download link to view the presentation and the handout. You do not need to pay again.

Registrants will receive a GotoWebinar link and a handout before the webinar begins. No special software is required to participate in the webinar, but a high speed internet connection enhances the participation experience. Questions can be addressed to Michael at mjnrootdig@gmail.com.
