The Illinois State Genealogical Society will present “Hard to Find but Valuable Prairie State Resources for Genealogical Research” on Tues. Nov. 14 at 9 p.m. Stuck using the same old resources looking for your Illinois ancestors? Learn how to “mine” an extensive list of archives, libraries, online sites and unusual places and “strike gold” in your search.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “British and Irish Research: the Differences” on Wed. Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. Ireland was England’s oldest colony, so many assume the records will be the same. They are not precisely because the two country’s histories and their relationship to each other were different. Many are aware of the loss of Irish records, but there are great treasure troves of surviving records which don’t exist in England – records about war, rebellion, security and land control. This webinar will examine these differences in records and research techniques between Britain and Ireland, why Irish records were created, or destroyed, and how they can be used to unlock your past.

Southern California Genealogy Society will present “Ancestral Hunting Grounds: Doing On-Site Research” on Wed. Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. It’s more than a vacation; It’s a hunting trip! And the game? Your ancestors’ home, place of business, tombstone, records, and more. But it’s more than jumping in the car or on a plane: it takes planning and preparation. Learn how to hunt successfully.
