Details

As genealogy records go online, the ways in which we search them change. Ancestry.com has indexed millions of records into amazingly detailed databases. However, they are also rife with errors due to misspellings, poor handwriting, deliberate subterfuge, and rushed transcriptions. Genealogist Alec Ferretti will explain the different elements of the Ancestry search interface, and will outline creative strategies which can be employed to overcome this imperfect data.
