Too often, we do ancestral research by relying on the usual sources such as Ancestry.com. On Sept. 17, genealogist Tammy Hepps, the creator of the family story-sharing website Treelines.com, will demonstrate How to Find Out Everything There is to Possibly Know About Your Ancestors.
Hepps brings a fresh perspective to researching and sharing family history that takes advantage of the latest technology. Her presentation will demonstrate how to plan your ancestor research to find sources more likely to contain the information you are seeking. She will show you how to make surprising discoveries and share them in a compelling way.
Hepps will include the case study of a real ancestor search, showing how surprising information can be obtained from unexpected places. She is entertaining, funny and instructive.
Tammy A. Hepps is a technologist, storyteller, and life-long genealogist. She founded Treelines.com, winner of the RootsTech 2013 Developer Challenge. She is a popular presenter at RootsTech conferences and to audiences everywhere. She was invited to present her family history research into the Jewish community of Homestead, PA, at the Library of Congress (available online at HomesteadHebrews.com).
