National Archives Virtual Genealogy Fair continues today

The National Archives Virtual Genealogy Fair began yesterday and it was an awesome opportunity! Talks resume at 10 a.m. ET today.

"Great Granny Eunice came from Ireland, Grandpa Fred was in the War, Can Access Archival Databases (AAD) Help Me?" will open things today. The second talk covers World War I Draft Registration Guide. Other sessions today are: Ancestry.com; Finding the Correct Ancestor: Using Civil War and Census Records; Family Search; U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; and
Federal Land Records at the National Archives.

Talks yesterday included an Introduction to Genealogy, Preserving Your Records, When Saying ‘I Do’ Meant Giving Up Your U.S. Citizenship, and Overview of American Indian Records and Resources on the National Archives Website. If you missed them, do not panic! The National Archives will make them available by the end of November.

Follow along today and tomorrow on You Tube. Be sure to keep watch on Twitter as well using hashtag #genfair2014.
Locations listed are located in Pennsylvania (USA), unless otherwise noted in post.
