We’ll be learning to use the online microfilms at FamilySearch.org. In a case study, we’ll find first and second immigration papers at the city and county level in Illinois. This is information that is not available by searching for a name.
A few years ago you would have had to travel to Salt Lake City to view microfilms. Now many, many of them have been scanned and posted to the FamilySearch website. Come and learn the tricks to using this research source. In the weeks following the class, I’ll set times to help you with your online microfilm research.
