  • Saving your resource documents (on computer or in hard copy files)
  • Finding and using secondary sources: genealogies, county histories, newspapers, etc.
  • Accessing information at state and county archives, historical and genealogical societies, and state, county and city libraries
Class 4 (Sept. 17) will cover:
