For the Fall 2021 term, we're offering a mix of virtual and in-person classes. Although we are still primarily virtual, you will find a smaller selection of in-person seminars in the schedule. For more information about the Newberry’s virtual seminars, including a Zoom tutorial, please see our Virtual Seminars FAQ page. Registration opens on September 1st at 9am (Central time). Registration will take place through our online platform, Learning Stream.
If you have exhausted your old standby resources and need some new records to review, there are some other databases to check out. In this two-session seminar, we will learn about frequently overlooked online genealogy resources like Fold3.com, a primarily military site; Newspapers.com; American Ancestors; and FindMyPast.
Two sessions. Registration – $85
