Using specific eamples for beginners, as well as more advanced researchers, we will explore the site and point out how to make the most of the categories and the links found within.
 
Off the Shelf:  The Unexplored Potential for eBooks in Genealogy
There is a treasure trove of untapped research sources online:  the electronic book or ebook. Repositories are digitizing publications and putting them online for us to use without having to leave the comfort of our homes. We will explore all the options that are out there to move your research forward.
 
Tracking Your Digital Bread Crumbs:  Bookmarks, Toolbars, Notes, & Other Applications

It's easy to get lost and lose focus on what you were trying to find in the first place. And with so may websites to use in your research, how do you keep track of them all? How do you organize what you use regularly? How can you get back to a site at some point in the future? We have several ways to help you gain control of your digital bread crumbs.
