Scheduled Presentation for 4th WAC Conference

Title: Hopping Down the Paper Trail

Summary: The records our ancestors left behind often lead us to other records, which sometimes take us down a rabbit hole. Learn how to scour each new record for clues, keep those clues organized, and how to prioritize which clues to chase first so that you stay on track.
