There are multiple ways to search Ancestry. The most difficult task is how to narrow down the "hits" which you receive and decide if the result is for your ancestor. The card catalog, filters, family trees have been fined tuned and will be discussed.   Tools which allow you to print and report errors will be demonstrated. If you are experienced, returning to Ancestry research, or a beginner, this class is for you. Workshop time is built into the class.  Bring your family tree, research, and questions.  Individual assistance will be provided. Laptops are available or you may bring your own computer.
