Sticking Points by Hadyn ShawEvery generation brings new ideas and preferences to the mix. And every new generation is looked on suspiciously by the previous ones - at first. Whether you're a Traditionalist, a Baby Boomer, a Gen Xer, or a Millennial, you've been misunderstood and had to fight for what you want the world to be. When it comes to the workplace, that can get sticky. If you're a manager, you'll want to read Sticking Points: How to Get 4 Generations Working Together in the 12 Places They Come Apart by Hadyn Shaw.

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.
