Join us via Zoom for a virtual genealogical program as part of our annual Find Your Ancestors series.
Everyone has them. Brick walls can be the most frustrating part of research but they may be more easily taken down than you may think! There are many, many sources of information about our ancestors. Researchers need to know where to look and how to use the collections that tell us more about our family. Lori Bessler, Reference Librarian at the Wisconsin Historical Society, will provide guidance on collections, research strategies and methods of organizing your research to make it possible to plow right through your brick walls.
Presented by Lori Bessler.
