When an offhand remark from RootsTech ended up on Twitter, I knew I must have had the attention of a few people!

Four lectures in four days along with a few booth demos of Ancestry Academy left me pretty tired, but it was worth it. Great groups of people in all of my classes – I had a great time.
The more I teach, the more I am convinced, conference goers love methodology. Tell me how to do something! I’m including links for PDFs of all of my talks. And a pointer to the livestream of my search talk.
- Ancestry Helps Tell Your Ancestor’s Story: Basic functionality in “New Ancestry” is covered so you can focus on doing more than just collecting records for your ancestor. Telling the story is also important. You can also check out my free Ancestry Academy course Learn About Your Ancestors Using the Latest From Ancestry
- How to Find Probate and Estate Records for Your Ancestor on Ancestry: I reviewed how to find, search and more importantly browse Wills, Probates and Estate records on Ancestry. You can also view my free Ancestry Academy course Navigating Wills and Probates on Ancestry.
- Your Ancestors’ War Story from Beginning to End: I love talking about the military adventures of my ancestors, especially Civil War ancestors. I lay out my basic methodology for researching your military ancestors.
- How to Become a Master Searcher on Ancestry: My first job at Ancestry over seven years ago was as the Search Product Manager and I’ve never lost my love for the product. Telling the story is also important. You can also check out my free Ancestry Academy course Seek and Ye Shall Find: Become an Ancestry Search Expert
If you were in my classes, thanks for attending!
