Join us for a special double program with Steve Morse, the man who created the “One-Step” research tool that gives novice and experienced genealogists the key to Ellis Island and Castle Garden databases and much more. http://jgsgb.org/event/steve-morse-two-lectures-one-step-webpages-and-case-study/
Morning lecture at 11 AM: One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools. Steve Morse initially created the “One-Step” website as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. He later expanded it to search the 1930 Census. He has continued to update the website, adding many more databases and programs to help us trace our ancestors’. He will describe the range of tools available and the highlights of each one.
Afternoon lecture at 1:30 PM: Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman. Steve will show us how to use his One-Step Webpages and other websites in a fascinating case study. He will demonstrate how a minimal amount of initial information can lead to an entire genealogy. He will also show how to obtain records in spite of name misspellings and how to avoid accepting wrong information.
There will be an optional lunch available between the two presentations. Information on registering for lunch will be available in September.
