Four-Star Genealogy on a One-Star Budget by Mary Roddy
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to afford every subscription database you want? But sometimes that’s just not in the cards. Does that mean you can’t do genealogy? Absolutely not! Learn about some free databases that just might help you in your research. Or for those cousins you’re trying to lure into research – these free databases might be just the thing to get them hooked on this addicting hobby. Even if you just take a short hiatus from a subscription sites you’ll find resources you never thought to look for… and maybe reinvigorate your research in the process. (recorded May 4, 2108)
