Exploring Your Family's History: Genealogy Series
Come join the Sahara West Library for these FREE genealogy workshops. Every third Sunday of the month, trace back your family’s origins with assistance on various techniques, search engines, preserving family photos and heirlooms, etc.
During the month of January, three lectures will be covered by Speaker Steven Morse:
Lecture One: One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools
Mr. Morse will describe the range of tools available on the One-Step website, ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations, to last-minute bidding on e-bay.
Lecture Two: One-Step Webpages: A Hodgepodge of Lesser-Known Gems
This is the sequel to Potpourri talk, covering other useful tools that unfortunately found their way to the cutting-room floor when the Potpourri talks were edited.
Lecture Three: From DNA to Genetic Genealogy: Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask
Steven Morse will provide an introduction to genetic genealogy, covering such basic topics as genes, chromosomes, and DNA, and showing how these can be used for genealogical purposes.
Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, first-ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies.
In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents.
