Internet Tools for Genealogists
by Barbara Renick.

    Barbara will demonstrate various types of online tools that genealogists find helpful. Examples of websites for each type of tool will be explored along with some of their hidden features and limitations. Note: Google is not necessarily the best way to find such tools online.

    Barbara is a nationally known genealogy lecturer, speaking frequently at National Genealogical Society, Brigham Young University, and the Federation of Genealogical Societies conferences. She serves on staff and teaches at the Regional Family History Center in Orange, California. Barbara writes for several genealogy publications, including the NGS NewsMagazine, was co-author of The Internet for Genealogists: A Beginner’s Guide, and author of Genealogy 101: How to Trace Your Family’s History and Heritage which was sponsored by NGS for its 100th Anniversary. Her 'Z' Links page at her website is a favorite tool for many of her students. Barbara also has authored several instructional videos on how to trace your family tree online.
