by Amy Johnson Crow

Posted on June 11, 2013

Just because school is out doesn't mean you can't learn something new about genealogy! The Archives.com livestreams on Wednesdays are fun ways to learn about different resources and how to climb higher on your family tree. Let's take a look at some upcoming topics:

June 12, Across the Pond: Using UK Censuses

Many people trace their family history back to the United Kingdom. Learn about the wonderful census records you can use in your UK research.

June 19, Does That Record Even Exist?

Don't spin your wheels looking for records that don't exist. Learn how to estimate when events occurred and how to tell if a vita record for that event should have been created.

June 26, Source Citations: They're Not As Hard As You Think

Does the thought of writing a source citation send chills down your spine? Watch this livestream and learn why citations are important and how you can take the fear out of creating them.

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.
