I had a great time presenting a remote webinar for the Tazewell County Genealogical Society in Pekin, Illinois, this evening. Given the weather it was better to be holed up in my house than driving. The discussion was search strategies-including Soundex approaches (don’t forget to get the list of Soundex codes for your ancestral names).
We also discussed DNA briefly and here are links to the extensions that I mentioned:
- Label Your AncestryDNA Matches–the eight dots
- Another Thought On Labeling Your AncestryDNA Matches–more on the eight dots
- MedBetter for Your AncestryDNA Matches–this does not appear to be working for me as of this posting
I even virtually met additional descendants of Riley Rampley. Apparently the one I talked to tonight got Riley’s hair gene. I didn’t. It was a great group in Pekin tonight. Thanks for having me present.
