Tuesday's Tip - Check Out Ancestry Anne's Search Tip Presentations

This week's Tuesday's Tip is:  Check out Ancestry Anne's search tips in her two presentations to the Fairfax, Virginia Genealogical Society Spring Conference last weekend.

Anne Gillespie Mitchell is an Ancestry.com employee, and is an expert searcher of Ancestry.com.  She has several genealogy blogs, including a relatively new one called the Ancestry.com Library Edition Reference Desk.

Anne made two presentations about searching Ancestry.com at the Fairfax conference, and has put links to the two presentations in PDF format on her blog post Search Presentations from the Fairfax Genealogical Society Conference.  The titles of the two talks are:

*  Learning How to Tune Your Ancestry.com Search

*  Exhaustively Searching on Ancestry.com

I have reviewed the slides of both of these presentations, and found many excellent tips for searching Ancestry.com that I had not considered before.   See, you can teach this old dog some new tricks!!

While it's not the same as being at the conference and experiencing the presentations, reading the slides is very useful.  These presentations confirm one of my summary points in my own Ancestry.com presentation - Ancestry has the most sophisticated, complete and complex search capability in the genealogy world.

My thanks to Anne for posting the slides, and for sharing her expertise with the genealogy community.
