The COVID-19 Pandemic caused many libraries, archives and research facilities to shut their doors to genealogists, and some have yet to resume normal hours. Researchers have turned to computers to pursue family history online.

Kathy Petlewski, librarian and NGS Magazine columnist, will introduce attendees to several lesser-known free digital libraries containing local history and genealogy information, including HathiTrust Digital Library, the Digital Public Library of America, and FamilySearch Digital Library.

During this virtual presentation, learn how to structure searches and then filter and limit hits for the best results using these products. This program is aimed at family history researchers who are comfortable searching online and are eager to explore new resources!
