Family History Tips & Tools Discussion Circle (FHTT)


Family history Tips & ToolsThe Family History Tips & Tools Discussion Circle aims to provide a dynamic vehicle for building members’ understanding of the ‘what and how’ of family history research.

In each monthly session we will examine genealogical resources available to GSV Members and model using the tools that access them. The emphasis will be on using the resources generated by GSV Members such as those available in the GSV Index of Names (GIN) and Milestone databases. Guest members will explain how they use the resources and tools and provide tips to help us navigate them ourselves. Members experienced with those, or similar tools and resources, will be present to answer your questions.

The sessions are designed to enable members to share their experiences about a wide range of subjects. All members will have an opportunity to contribute to the sessions.
