FF-D Librarian's Boot Camp - JamboFREE Sessions
This three and a half hour class includes multiple areas of interest for librarians.
• Introduction to Genealogy for Librarians and Patrons
Many librarians have little to no training in genealogy before being assigned to help genealogy patrons. This session provides a thorough overview of the genealogy research process and resources for librarians, and provides a framework for getting beginning family history researchers started.
• Teaching Your Patrons How to Use FamilySearch.org
FamilySearch.org is the free, comprehensive genealogical website of the LDS Church. This session will cover its use by librarians and their patrons, including digitized records (both with and without indexing), digitized books, a shared family tree, self-paced online courses, and a wiki with thousands of research articles.
• Promoting Newspaper Resources to Genealogists
Digitized and indexed newspapers at free and commercial websites are a critical part of genealogical research. Librarians need to be aware of these sites and instruct patrons on their use. This session will cover such sites as Chronicling America, Google News Archive, NewsBank products, Newspapers.com, NewspaperArchive.com, and findmypast.com, among others.
