WEA1166 Online Family Trees


How can online family trees help your own research?
There are an enormous number of existing family trees already online with varying degrees of accuracy and completeness.
You will learn where to find them and how to recognise and deal with some of the pitfalls involved, eg inaccurate data.
We will also touch on some of the ways to publish your own research in such trees in the hope of finding other relations to share your research with, whilst also dealing with some of the issues, eg privacy.
Some of the sites that will be discussed: ancestry.com, RootsWeb, GenesReunited, MyHeritage, FamNet.
