Webinar on Elements of Citation

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Registration ends at 6:00 pm central on 26 January 2016. See below to register.

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.
