Michigan: Advanced Googling for Genealogy, May 3

Googling genealogists are always looking for strategies to find out more about their family history.

"Advanced Googling for Genealogical Purposes," with Pamela Buchstaber Smith, will be the topic for the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan at 1.30pm, Sunday, May 3.

The meeting will be held at the Holocaust Memorial Center, Zekelman Family Campus, in Farmington Hills, and has been rescheduled from its original March date.

For the past nine years Buchstaber Smith, the daughter of Russian immigrant parents, has been researching her family roots using her computer skills in solving genealogical mysteries of the past and the present.

Google, one of the best search engines available, has made it much easier for genealogists, family historians, etc. to discover information that otherwise could take days, weeks or even longer to find.

With tips demonstrating Advanced Googling, learn how to find books, photos, history, clothes, and news about your family much easier. Google alerts will bring information about your family directly to your email. Learn how to get information on your family from all those blogs out there? This talk will teach you all that and more.
She's a member of the JGSM and of the Flint Genealogical Society.

Fee: JGSMI members, free; others, $5. For more details, visit the JGSMI website or send an email.
