Barbara Renick's Tutorials

I received my issue of UpFront, the NGS monthly email newsletter, today, and noted the mention of two new Searching at tutorials by Barbara Renick, a noted Southern California genealogist and conference/seminar lecturer.

The two tutorials are located at They run 11 and 13 minutes respectively, and are very well done - a PowerPoint slides with Barbara's voiceover, and notes on the right side of the screen. The screen on the Part 1 tutorial is larger and easier to read than the screen on the Part 2 tutorial. However, you can click on the "Full Screen" icon next to the run time in the lower right hand corner to see the full screen with better resolution.

Barbara also has a nice set of genealogy links on her Links page - There are lecture notes on her Notes page - (this is where the Ancestry tutorials are "hiding" - under the NGS Lecture Notes button).

There are several other genealogy lecturers and societies that are providing online tutorials in this format. I appreciate them, and I hope you do too!

If you know of other video tutorials like this other than on, Roots Television or New England Ancestors, please let me know in Comments.
