LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: Presented by Carol Darrow, CG
Most genealogy records are created on the local level, so it's vital that you learn as much as possible about the county boundaries, history, maps, population, geography, religions, crops, and occupations of your ancestor's hometown. When you become an expert on that location, you will find the records you're looking for.

Think Inside the Boxes: Organize and Analyze Your Data with Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets are a valuable aid to genealogists. Originally they were created to calculate (and re-calculate) large columns and rows of numbers but they can also be used to manage and analyze vast amounts of genealogical data. Learn how to organize information from census records and city directories and then create a timeline of your ancestor’s lives. Beth Benko, a professional genealogist, will combine her 30 years of experience as a software developer with family history research to show you how.

A frequent lecturer, she is a volunteer at the Denver National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the Denver Public Library. Beth is also an officer in several local genealogy societies and a member of the National Genealogical Society and the Association of Professional Genealogists. She has a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Computer Science.
