Free Webinars by Michael Hait

Michael Hait, a professional genealogist and author of the African American Genealogy Examiner, will be offering two free webinars this week.

What is a 'Reasonably Exhaustive Search'?Date:  Thursday, March 17, 2011
Time:  7:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
The first step of the Genealogical Proof Standard is to "complete a reasonably exhaustive search for all relevant records" related to your research objective. This presentation discusses what a "reasonably exhaustive search" constitutes, why this is necessary, and how to conduct a search.  A case study explores how failing to identify all relevant records can lead to missing information and forming inaccurate conclusions about your ancestors' lives.

African-American Genealogy: Tearing Down the BrickwallsDate:  Saturday, March 19, 2011
Time:  1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT
Brickwalls in African-American genealogy can be caused by lack of records or improper research habits. Learning to research effectively can help to avoid these brickwalls.

I love teach genealogy. In the past few years I have lectured around Maryland and the District of Columbia, and even twice in New Jersey. I have several more lectures coming up this year in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, the costs of travel prohibit my being able to lecture in distant cities and states. To get around this issue, I would like to offer my services as a lecturer remotely to societies around the country. This strategy is already being used with success by other lecturers, within our field and many others.

To promote my services, I am offering a series of free lectures, presented as online webinars. I would like any members of genealogical societies to attend these lectures, especially society program coordinators. These lectures can all be given directly to genealogical societies at any time. Speakers' fees will be discussed upon request.
All interested parties are of course welcome.

Future webinars will also be scheduled. For more information on other webinars by this lecturer, as well as other genealogy webinars by other lecturers, please visit the new GeneaWebinars blog. This site, established by genealogy blogger and lecturer dearMyrtle, contains announcements of upcoming genealogy blogs.
