Spend the Afternoon with Crista Cowan from Ancestry.com

Saturday, August 12, 2017

12:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Hands-on workshop. Bring your laptop. 

 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.  Getting the Most of Ancestry, Part 1

Are you getting the most out of your Ancestry.com subscription? Even if you don’t have a subscription, are you aware there are many things you can access for free? This overview of the five major areas of Ancestry.com and show you our favorite tools for advancing your family history research.
                              2:15 - 3:15 p.m.  Getting the Most of Ancestry, Part 2 
In the workshop, the attendees will work through various exercises that will help you apply what was discussed in Part 1. Often we hear something, but when we go to apply it later, it’s hard to remember. This workshop will be a hands-on experience that will enable you to practice what they’ve heard earlier to reinforce it.
Crista Cowan has been employed at Ancestry since 2004; her involvement in family history, however, reaches all the way back to childhood. She frequently speaks at local and national genealogy events around the country. Watch her live show, The Barefoot Genealogist, every Tuesday at 10:00 am (Pacific)/1:00 pm (Eastern) on http://ancestry.me/TBGVids.

Doors open at 12:00 noon. Bring a brown bag lunch and sit, chat, and share your genealogy stories with fellow family historians while you eat.

The program of lectures will begin at 1:00 p.m.

Lectures are subject to change. Please check visit the SCGS website for more information.
