Barbara Renick - Advanced Google Searching
There is more to Google searching than just the cutely graphical main search page. Google has not only specialized search pages (images, books, scholar, newspapers, etc.) but also many unpublicized advanced search features (such as the minus sign attached to the front of a word to exclude results that include that word). This lecture covers how to adapt your Google searches for better genealogical results.

Barbara Renick - How the Three Eras of Genealogy Affect Your Research Today
Genealogists today ignore the work of previous generations of researchers at their peril. This lecture looks at each of the three previous eras of research (Pen & Pencil, Typewriter, and Computer) for how they searched, recorded, and preserved what they had done. Possible pitfalls are analyzed as we search for clues left behind for us to find today.
