What’s New at AmericanAncestors.org

Title slide from the What’s New webinar

Today we’re featuring a recent online webinar that occurred–What’s New at AmericanAncestors.org. This webinar is the first in a new series that will highlight new resources for researchers on our site. Each webinar will focus on additions from the past three months.

Last week, I presented this webinar live. We record each of our webinars so that anyone can listen to them at their convenience after the fact. “What’s New at AmericanAncestors.org” is meant to help you stay up to date with all of our new digital resources. You will hear about new databases, search features, and resources only available at AmericanAncestors.org, from both our databases and our digital collections. The database section of this presentation summarizes and expands upon information presented in this blog, Database News. The digital collections portion may be new to Database News subscribers. If you’d like to learn more about the distinction between Databases and our Digital Collections, be sure to watch the webinar!

To access this webinar, choose “Webinars, Lectures, and How-to Videos” under the “Learn” menu on our homepage. You will need to log in as a Guest Member; access to our archived webinars is free. Webinars are listed in chronological order, starting with the most recent, so “What’s New at AmericanAncestors.org” should be near the top–it aired on October 10, 2019.

This webinar’s purpose is really to showcase new resources for researchers; it’s not a full explanation of how to use our site. In 2017, my colleague Don LeClair presented a webinar that dives into how to search our databases. It was called “Searching Databases on AmericanAncestors.org”. You can find it by scrolling down in the list of webinars to December 2017.

To register for the next installment of “What’s New at AmericanAncestors.org”, (happening in January 2020) visit Online Events (under the Events tab). All webinars are free and open to anyone.
