Part Number: WXFPRINTS_

Price: $9.95
Merging or separating identities is a core genealogical problem. Sometimes we find a person of the same name in several different places over time. Other times, we find two easily confounded people in the same place and time. A series of short case studies illustrates the importance of certain identity.

“Honey, I’ve got the divorce papers” didn’t come out of Geoff’s mouth how he intended when he showed his wife the package he received in the mail. It was a divorce case from 1879 which, although heartbreaking, began to unlock the identities of the children of Marsden and Jane Brown.

In this webinar, Legacy’s Geoff Rasmussen will begin to document and assemble the family using records he recently discovered (divorce papers, census records, obituaries, and marriage records). You are invited to watch live as he adds the information to his personal Legacy family file. In this live, unscripted session, Geoff will talk his way through setting up the source clipboard, adding custom events, utilizing the To Do List, stitching multiple pages into a combined digital file, and adding the new information he found. Viewers will learn data entry and analysis skills for most efficiently using Legacy Family Tree to assemble ancestral families.

Part Number: WXFNDEVIMR_

Price: $9.95
With the ever expanding digital resources available today we can find evidence of kinship in military records often neglected. Records such as pensions, service records, medical records, and even pension payment records are increasingly available. However, our need to ensure that we conduct “reasonably exhaustive research” required by the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) will often times require research in original textual records. This webinar will focus on finding kinship information in both online and textual military records.

Part Number: WXCOUNTUT_

Price: $9.95
One of the first things we do as family history researchers is to track our ancestor in the federal census. This provides us with a time and place for our family. But there are other records that can also provide that information. Aside from the federal census, it’s important to be familiar with state specific censuses, directories (city as well as topical) and voter registrations. These resources provide names, relationships, addresses, occupations and other genealogically important data. We’ll look at what is available and where to find these items online and off.
