Summertime and the living is easy, so the song says. Summertime is also a relaxing time to learn about discovering your family tree! Grab an ice cold drink, take your laptop out to the hammock, and enjoy five new livestreams this month! Topics include:
African-Americans played an important role in the founding of the United States, but are often overlooked in Revolutionary War research. Learn about resources for researching these forgotten people.
The 1900 and 1910 U.S. censuses contain a great deal of information -- so much so, that it's easy to miss some of it! Learn the ins and outs of these two valuable resources.
Old handwriting can be beautiful until you start trying to read it! Learn some ways that you can decipher the writing on old documents.
It's a small world, except when you're trying to find where an ancestor came from! Learn about resources for finding an ancestor's origins.
Sometimes the answers about an ancestor don't come from that person, but can come from one of his or her siblings. Learn ways to research the siblings to get more answers.
The Archives.com livestreams are free and held online on the Ancestry livestream channel on Wednesdays at 1:00pm Eastern/10:00am Pacific. Join host Amy Johnson Crow as she shares genealogy tips and tricks to help you discover your ancestors.
