Shaky Leaf Syndrome – Using Website Generated Hints More Effectively
Presented by Sara Cochran.
Thursday June 2nd from 10:00 AM to Noon
Zoom Meeting - Registration Required

Indexing, optical character recognition, and computer algorithms make finding obscure records about our families easier than ever! Unfortunately, computers can’t distinguish between people of the same name who lived in different places or at different times. Using real examples, we’ll practice evaluating hints and attaching the keepers to our trees.
