How To Search The Internet Like A Genealogist

Barry Ewell has been kind enough to post all ninety-six slides of the presentation he gave at RootsTech.  I hope any of you who are interested in learning about new and different ways to structure your searches in order to find more information will take a look at his presentation.

One of his best pieces of advice, and one I am always nagging you about, is keeping a research journal, or log, to track what you are doing.

There are as many ways to do this are there are genealogists digging for their roots, and as always, y'all have to find the way that works best for you - but I cannot emphasize enough the importance of keeping track of your searches.

Ninety-six slides may seem like a lot to read, but it goes pretty quick and I GUARANTEE you will learn something from Barry that will help you structure better searches.

For those of you who may be interested in a more permanant copy of this presentation, I have added the PDF file to the "Resources" section of the blog.
