Work it Livestream: A Bird’s Eye View into Tracing Enslaved Communities

If you’ve watched the Systems for Tracking Enslaved Communities webinar or attended the presentation at a conference or event, you’re already familiar with how I use spreadsheets to create a searchable “database” of slavery era documents that helps you get to the information you need quickly.  

If you’ve watched the Getting Cozy With Family Tree Maker webinar, you’re already familiar with how I do data entry in the program and use it to capture my findings alongside an online tree at Ancestry. 

In this livestream, I combine what I discussed in those two presentations to show you how I work in real-time, tracing a single family group through several slavery era documents using the 1870 Census as a starting point.
