The One-Step genealogical website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to evolve and today includes about 200 web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay. There are too many utilities on the One-Step website to be covered in a single talk, so this talk describes those gems that you might not otherwise be aware of. They range from problems with genealogical searches to problems with identity theft to problems with DNA. Always entertaining, realizably illuminating, this talk will help you scale your research brick walls.
Speaker: Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website for which he has received numerous awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. . He is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in E.E. – Electrical Engineering. He is well known as the architect of the Intel 8086, which sparked the PC revolution.
Meetings are free to JGSLA members. Guests $5.00.
