Office Hours

You know how college professors or perhaps a teaching assistant would have office hours each week? You could drop in an ask questions and get help related to a specific topic? I’m often asked by my followers (sometimes jokingly but also seriously),  if they could just sit and “pick my brain” for an hour.  I don’t have time to do this on an individual basis, but how about setting up an ONLINE office hour webinar where you can ask me anything related to genealogy?

Short videos cover topics such as “How do I insert a hyperlink to a record on Ancestry in my Excel research log?” or “How should I rename my record image files so they make sense and I can easily find them?” Believe it or not, I have had the same type of questions and I’ve come up with some neat solutions. I’m happy to share my tips and tricks so you can find genealogy research success! Click HERE to access!
