Gen Squad Webinar - Researching the Cluster

Neighbors courtesy of Clker.comFinding your ancestor's family in a census can be easy - or incredibly hard. Genealogists, am I right? One strategy for finding the ancestor playing hide-and-seek is to research their cluster: the neighbors and family living and often migrating with them. In our next Gen Squad lesson we'll be watching a webinar about how to do cluster research to bring that hard-to-find family out into the open. Join us on Monday, 4/25 at 2:00pm.

Tell Me Something I Don't Know

Pogue's Basics: LifeHave you heard of Pogue's Basics? They're handy little books from David Pogue that fill in all the blanks of what you've learned in your life. One of them is all about technology and has handy tips that even one of our Technology Trainers didn't know. I recently read the one about life, and I'm using several of his tips now on a daily basis. If I wasn't a know-it-all before, I definitely am now!
