Presenter: Nicole Wedemeyer Miller

Genealogy is the second most popular hobby in the U.S. In this webinar you will learn ideas for working with genealogists, even if you don't have a dedicated genealogy/local history collection at your library. Nicole Wedemeyer Miller, co-author of Fostering Family History Services: A Guide for Librarians, Archivists and Volunteers, will give you low and no-cost ideas for reference and programming that can be implemented quickly.

During this hour, the following questions will be answered:

  • How do genealogical sources differ from sources used in other types of research?
  • How is genealogical information organized in print and digital formats?
  • What can I do for patrons if I don’t have a genealogy/local history collection?
  • How do I make effective referrals to a variety of institutions that hold sources useful for genealogy?
  • What are the major types of genealogical websites and how do I help researchers locate them?
  • Which types of programs are helpful to researchers yet are not complicated to organize?

This webinar will be of interest to any information providers who want to serve genealogists, particularly those in small institutions.
