Covered will be Gesher Galicia’s databases, including The All Galicia Database, the Cadastral Map Room and Galician Archival Records Project inventories, along with resources like GenTeam, Mapire and Genealogy Indexer. Techniques for successful database searching, expanding Google’s reach, foreign language searches, document analysis and translation options will be covered.

(A working knowledge of how to use a computer and basic computer commands is essential.)
