Repository Research: Why Go If It’s All Online?  (Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Kenhill Center, 2614 Kenhhill Dr., Bowie, MD 20715
More and more documents and being digitized and placed online, but the researcher who relies only on what is found online is not making use of all available information. A personal visit to a repository, possibly in the area where your ancestor resided, may be necessary. Repositories hold millions of records: microfilm, sound recordings, motion and still pictures and texts. To effectively research in repositories, one needs to understand (1) what types of records exist for the time period being researched; (2) where those records are housed; and (3) how the records are arranged. Preparation is the most important factor in finding records!
Join us to hear Sharon Hodges remind us of the importance of personal visits to repositories in our genealogical research and guide us in making such a visit.
