The Program: Getting The Most Out of Ancestry.com

Do you have an Ancestry.com subscription (or are thinking about getting one) but suspect that you are only using a fraction of what can be done with the powerful tools and resources available on this website? Spend an afternoon with Crista Cowan, The Barefoot Genealogist, as she shares what's new on Ancestry.com.  She'll show you how to access key record collections to assist with your Jewish and other European family history research.  She'll also share some of her favorite search tips and site tricks.  Join us to learn more about unleashing the full potential of Ancestry.com on your family history.  Even if you've been using Ancestry.com for years you are sure to learn something new!

Crista has been involved with family history research for over 20 years and is the owner of Legacy Family History Services, specializing in descendancy research, Jewish immigration, and sharing family history with the genealogically challenged.
