Webinar: Shaky Leaf Syndrome: Using Website Generated Hints More Effectively
Speaker: Sara Cochran
When: Tuesday, July 19, 2022 at 8:00pm Eastern

Program Description:
Indexing, optical character recognition, and computer algorithms make finding obscure records about our families easier than ever! Unfortunately, computers can’t distinguish between people of the same name who lived in different places or at different times. Using real examples, we’ll practice evaluating hints and attaching the keepers to our trees.
