The Case of the Broken Link: Decoding the URL
by Cyndi Ingle

Web site addresses appear to be long, complicated, and mysterious. Navigating through the web leads you from link to link, web page to web page, site to site, and server to server - all in a matter of a few clicks. How can you sort out separate web sites? How can you track down a new URL for a broken link or a broken bookmark? What happens when your source citation for a web site contains a URL that suddenly disappears? We will break down this technical topic to help you easily hunt down the URL you need.

Cyndi Ingle, a genealogist for more than 35 years, is the creator of Cyndi’s List; author of three books for genealogical research on the Internet; a past-member of the board of directors for the National Genealogical Society and active member in several other genealogical groups.

Using Tax Records for Genealogical Problem Solving
by Dr. Michael D. Lacopo, DVM

Although most researchers are aware of tax records, they are seldom utilized and dismissed as boring and insignificant. Tax records can solve MANY genealogical dilemmas and should be a primary record source to utilize. Clues to family relationships, further research, vital information, migration, and more can be found within these amazing records. This lecture will show you how they can help you!

Dr. Michael D. Lacopo is a retired small-animal veterinarian born and raised in northern Indiana. He takes a scientific approach to his research as he does to his profession. Researching since 1980, he has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals. A self-described “all-American mutt,” his research skills cover a broad range.

 

Note: Our 2017 Webinar Series will be announced after December 10, 2016.
