Using and Evaluating Published Genealogies
Following the advent of American genealogy in the early to mid-19th century, thousands of genealogies were published featuring families across the country. While largely uncited—and arguably biased—these early works continue to be an important resource for modern day family historians. Join Lead Genealogist of the Early New England Families Study Project and frequent contributor to the Vita Brevis blog, Alicia Crane Williams, to learn how you can access, evaluate, and utilize early published family histories in your research.

Many of us have books, photographs, Bibles, letters, and other paper-based objects relating to our families—some of which can be quite old and fragile. While these materials have sentimental value to us as individuals, collectively they form a large part of our cultural heritage; they need special attention in order to preserve them for future generations. This webinar will present and discuss strategies and steps for preserving your individual cultural heritage, with a focus on ways to store your material to ensure long-term survival.
