If you have looked for family members to add to your family tree, you’ve probably visited the National Archives. You don’t have to travel to DC to tap into the treasure trove inside that majestic building. Federal records can be accessed online at no cost from the comfort of your home.
Later this month the National Archives is hosting a three-day Genealogy Fair that will be a live webcast.
Whether you’ve never tried to find someone or consider yourself an accomplished genealogist, the lecturers will give you tips for accessing census, American Indian, military, naturalization, and immigration records. Others will address tools for online genealogy resources and guidance on preserving personal records.
The live lectures can be viewed on YouTube on October 28, 29, and 30, 2014 starting at 10 a.m., eastern time.
You may want to order the Genealogy Tool Kit written by National Archives genealogy archives specialist John P. Deeban now before the Genealogy Fair lectures start.
If you cannot watch the live lectures, they will be recorded and available for viewing after the Fair.
