Chapter Management Seminar

Monday, May 23, 2016


The Ohio Genealogical Society is pleased to offer a series of webinars originally presented by genealogy educators Lisa Alzo and Thomas MacEntee. These webinars are being presented as a members-only benefit. They may not be downloaded or shared. These webinars were produced by Hack Genealogy. Hack Genealogy is owned and administered by Thomas MacEntee. All rights reserved. 

The first webinar being presented is: Ladies First: Finding Your Female Ancestors Mini Boot Camp

There are handouts available as well for you. Find Your Female Ancestors is a great webinar and gives you many clues and ideas on where to research and how to research your female ancestors. Since half of our ancestors are female, it is just as important to find their information as it is to find their husbands' information.

A new webinar will be added about every 4 weeks. We hope you enjoy this new feature.
