Camarillo Public Library, 4101 E. Las Posas Rd, Camarillo, CA
 
Presenter: Dr. Brian Leverich
 
"Linkpendium: Ten Million Ways to Discover Your Family History"
 
We can access many outstanding genealogical resources via the Internet. Libraries, genealogical/historical societies, governments, volunteer projects, and individuals have brought vast amounts of information online. But genealogists cannot find much of this information with just simple search engine queries. In this talk we'll learn about how to craft more effective search engine queries, why even the best queries still often fail, and how to use Linkpendium's directory and search engine to find the Internet's hidden genealogical gems.
 
Dr. Brian Leverich was a U.S. Senate Youth Fellow in American History and Politics at Harvard, and holds a Ph.D. from the Pardee RAND Graduate School. His love of history led him to genealogy 4 decades ago, and he was one of the pioneers of Internet (then ARPAnet) genealogy in the early 1980s. He was the founding moderator of soc.genealogy.methods, the first Internet group dedicated to genealogical research methods. He is the cofounder of RootsWeb.com and remains active today as one of the principals maintaining and developing Linkpendium.com.

"Effective Database Searching"
 
While all genealogists use online databases these days, poor searching techniques result in many researchers missing things that are actually available in these databases. This lecture focuses on improving search techniques, such as using wildcards, phonetic matching options, searching selected fields only, etc. Many examples from Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org are used, with scattered examples from other databases, as well.
 
Mr. Gostin has been conducting genealogical research since 1980, and has worked as a full-time professional genealogist since 1994. He has twice been President of the Jewish Genealogical Society, Los Angeles, and has taught genealogy for several adult school and university extension programs. Mr. Gostin has helped plan and organize three national genealogical seminars, and has been a featured speaker at a half-dozen such conferences. He lectures widely on Jewish genealogy, Southern California resources and naturalization and immigration records. Mr. Gostin is the author of Southern California Vital Statistics: Volume 1, Los Angeles County 1850-1859, and the owner of Generations Press publishing company. He was featured on the Larry Lamb episode of the original UK version of the popular genealogy television show Who Do You Think You Are? He is very active in the international Jewish genealogical community, and maintains contact with genealogists throughout the world. Mr. Gostin is also an active member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
