Communicating with your Ancestors' Kin

Communicating with your Ancestors' Kin.

What to do now? You have searched Ancestry, FamilySearch, HeritageQuest, and many other genealogy websites but all you are getting is the same old, same old. The brick walls are still standing.

If only you could ask you ancestors. I'm not talking about a seance but social media. Maybe your ancestors' kin is also working on the family history. They might have access to information or records that you don't. Public message boards and private messaging might be the answer.

In the October genealogy workshop, Meredy will discuss using social media. The workshop begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, October 1st in the Wells County Public Library Boardroom.
