BOTH    Via Zoom AND In-Person at the

Roadrunner Room - Thomas Branigan Memorial Library

Genealogy Do-Over™:
A Year of Learning from My Mistakes!

Presented by Thomas MacEntee

It isn’t often that we get a “do-over” when it comes to stuff that matters in life. When you first got started researching your family history, did you do some things that now are just plain “embarrassing” such as name collecting, not citing sources and more? Well now there’s hope since genealogists from beginner to advanced are employing new research methodologies and documentation practices.

Follow genealogist Thomas MacEntee as he basically starts his genealogy research from scratch but includes sound research practices and methodologies as well as new templates, tools, and the latest technology for better family history research.
