Local Historical Societies

If you are a intent upon researching your ancestors, consider joining your local historical society. Membership can offer you so many benefits.

1. Meetings lead to meeting others and networking can result in an informational hint you’d never receive any place else.

2. Awareness of local, state, and national workshops or conferences. Salt Lake City is mecca to those of us who partake in this venture. So many organizations structure events there or other exciting locations.

3. Newsletters inform you of lectures being held nearby.

4. You discover the endless connectivity of the organizations which are out there waiting for you, or the one that is waiting for your to charter it.

5. There are many more, but it really depends on you and your level of involvement. Go out there and participate!

Online there are a host of membership-based or open access genealogy pages. Many cemeteries have their own sites both on the web in general and also on every social media platform out there.  Find a few. Follow them. But, don’t just wait for them to issue updates.  My experience is that all internet sources wax and wane; so, be prepared to look into other sites and keep moving and learning.

If you find a resource that is tremendous, pass it on and let me know.

Now, get out there and hunt.
