Topics include names and name variations, strategies for researching common names, revisiting old research with new eyes, obtaining the most out of the records you find, alternate approaches to solving genealogical problems, differences in search engines and indexing, extracting unexpected information from death records, the importance of geography in searches, creative use of city directories and the importance of persistence in genealogical research.
