Breaking Down Brick Walls: How to Get the Best from Commercial Websites

Working as a group, John Hanson presents guided search techniques for exploring online databases.

This workshop gives you an opportunity to tackle genealogical brick walls and conundrums in a group environment. After all two heads (or more) are usually better than one! John Hanson presents guided search techniques for exploring online databases.

This is one in a series of workshops aimed at breaking down brick walls. In each one, the tutor introduces a common topic or problem - one that often comes up during the Society’s regular consultations or advice sessions. The tutor's aim is to make sure that you know what you need to know so that you can tackle the problem.

Then, acting as a facilitator, the tutor opens up the session to the group, allowing questions and discussions about your genealogical queries that may (but not exclusively) be related to the topic under discussion.
