Webinar on Elements of Citation

Date: 28 January 2017–2:00 pm central. Session hosted via GotoWebinar.img_20160610_112610540

Citation does not have to be intimidating or something to avoid. Our focus will be on citation for the non-professional who realizes that they need to cite but does not want to become obsessed with it. In this hour-long presentation we will see how to cite:

  • census records
  • wills
  • obituaries–both in the newspaper and one you found in Grandma’s old bible
  • photographs
  • tombstones
  • family items and heirlooms
  • vital records
  • more as time allows

Register here.

Citation does not have to be a dreaded part of research. See how it can actually help and strengthen your research. Registration limited. Handout included.

Colonial North American Project at Harvard University

The “Colonial North American Project” at Harvard University has as it’s goal to  “…make available to the world digitized images of all known archival and manuscript materials in the Harvard Library that relate to 17th and 18th century North America. Scattered through twelve repositories, these documents reveal a great deal about topics such as social life, education, trade, finance, politics, revolution, war, women, Native American life, slavery, science, medicine, and religion.”
