Track 4:  Basics for Beginners and Beyond
Speaker:  Jennifer Dondero

Session 41 – Can I Download My Family Tree?
This session is for complete beginners or those new to Internet genealogy.  What information is online for genealogists, and how do you use it appropriately? 

Session 42 – Citing Sources:  Why and How
Whether you’re a beginner or just don’t fully understand citing sources, this session is for you.  Learn not only how to create a citation but why each part is important.  Examples focus on governmental (local and federal) and online sources since these are often well used by beginners but confusing.

There’s more to your genealogy than just your great grandmothers and –fathers.  Learn what collateral research is, how it can benefit you, and how to do it.

Session 44 – Reporting to Yourself:  Keeping Track of What You’ve Already Done
Genealogy is more than just names, dates, and places.  Learn how to keep track of other information for continued research success.
