Indexing Challenge

During the conference we will be hosting an Indexing Challenge.  We would like to see how many names can be indexed during the conference.  We would really like the youth to come and help with the indexing as well as attending classes.  Participants will be taught how to index in English, Spanish and Italian.  You do not need to know how to read these languages to index the records.

Class Descriptions:
Hammons, Julie:  Internet Genealogy
Learn how to use the powerful gift of the Internet to help locate your ancestors. This class will show you how to craft your searches for success and show you free tools to help you have more successful searches. You will also learn how to keep safe and focused while you are online. You will be shown several search engines to use depending on your purpose, and how to get the Internet to work for you while you are off line. Learn how to keep track of what you find, and how to save what you find.

Communication has changed over the years for all of us, from a single letter to one person, to a Facebook post to our entire family and beyond, and no group has benefited more from this ability to interact with large groups of people than genealogists/family historians. Social networking now allows almost instant communication, quick response to questions, sharing of histories, photos and family documents. We will cover the largest, most helpful networking websites for genealogists, as well as show you some ways to use lesser-known sites. Learn how to harness the power of crowd sourcing and use your ‘Peeps’.


I love, love love ‘ Land and Probate Records’. Working together they are the ‘bread and butter’ of family history research. This is where you can sort out your brick walls; find the name of a wife, the married name of a daughter, the occupation of an ancestor, and so much more. As census records became plentiful online Land and Probate were not used as much by new genealogists. They are now coming online in digital format and the result will be amazing discoveries. Find out what can be waiting for you in these valuable record collections.

Urban, Tom and Cindy:  FamilySearch Family Tree, Part 1 and 2

Family Tree is an online family tree application that allows you to collaborate with others
to build, share, manage, and preserve your family history online.  Family Tree is an upgrade to new.FamilySearch that combines the best features and data from new.FamilySearch and adds powerful tools for data accuracy, usability, and collaboration.

The Family Tree is a new approach to genealogy. It is unlike any tool you've used before. You will connect with others who share a common interest in your genealogical lines. Together, you compare findings, weigh evidence, and decide what information is most correct. The history of your work and the rationale for change are preserved for others to see. You'll find great satisfaction in your family research because you are part of a team working towards the same goal - the most accurate, complete, and enduring family tree ever produced.

Family Tree currently supports full navigation of your genealogy tree. You can:
Ø  Explore trees, families, and individuals.
Ø  Edit and improve data about a specific individual.
Ø  Merge duplicates
Ø  Attach sources, including links to online sources.
Ø  Upload photos and stories.
Ø  Watch and receive notifications about changes to ancestors.
Ø  Submit names for temple ordinances

Part 1, Connecting the Dots, will cover: An Introduction, Working with Individuals, Workingwith Relationships,            Sources, Helps and Resoures.  Research Log PDF

Part 2, Hearts not Charts; Footprints of Our Ancestors, will cover:  Photos, Stories, and Temple Ordinances.
