The Santaquin Family History Center is sponsoring a free Family Discovery Day, Saturday, March 10, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at 45 S 500 W, Santaquin. They are offering FREE CLASSES to help you with your family history research. The presenters this year include instructors from the Utah Genealogical Association and RootsTech.
There will be a Web-Indexing “hands-on” workshop where you will learn the new web-based indexing program. A FamilySearch and FamilyTree Q&A workshop will answer your questions about using these two programs and accessing the records on these websites.
There are nine plus classes to choose from. Presentation titles include “Partner Apps on FamilySearch” given by Tavish Burnah. Some of the apps addressed are Relative Finder, Virtual Pedigree, One Page Genealogy, Pedigree Pie, Geneopardy, Wheel of Family Fortune, AncestorGames, Twile and Puzzilla. Other classes offered include “Piecing Together the Evidence” by Amy Archibald, where you will discover if you have the right pieces of evidence, where to find the missing pieces, and what to do with the pieces that just don’t fit.
Jill Woodbury will tell you how to recognize where hints reside, teach you how to create your own hints, and find records. If you are just beginning to do British Research you will want to take Ginny Ackerson’s class, “The ABCCC’s of British Research” which addresses the census, church and civil registration records of England and Wales.
