More About GOOGLE for Genealogy

The Mchenry County IL Genealogical Society hosts a presentation by Tina Beaird. Ms. Beaird will discuss how Google can be a useful tool for genealogical research. Utilizing services like google news, google maps, and google books can make you feel like Indiana Jones. But be wary, google has some traps and pitfalls as well. Tina will discuss ways to get the most out of google so you can find your holy grail.

Tina Beaird is owner of Tamarack Genealogy and the Genealogy/Local History Librarian at a midsized Chicagoland public library. She provides lectures extensively on military research, genealogical methodology, Scottish records, and archival preservation. She is a governing board member of the Northern Illinois Historical League and the Illinois State Historical Records Advisory board as well as a member of the Illinois World War I Centennial Commission. Tina volunteers her time with several local historical and genealogical societies scanning and indexing historic records. Occasionally, Tina finds time to research her own family tree, which she has been pursuing for over 20 years.

The meeting will be held at The Pointe, 5650 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake, IL 60014 (next to Target) at 7 pm Thursday, June 14, 2018.
