The day of lectures will begin with Prescott's keynote address, "How The Internet Makes Us Sloppy Genealogists." From there we will enjoy a number of breakout sessions on a variety of topics for varying interests and experience levels - but all designed to help us to become better (and less sloppy!) family historians.
In addition to learning about some of the tools available for online research, including FamilySearch.org
, we'll be exploring the use of divorce records, early Maine town records and academic archives for our research. So, bring your Maine related queries for our query board, visit our exhibitor/vendor area and enjoy a nice lunch during while making new friends and learning some new tips and techniques for furthering your own research.
