“HeritageQuest Online Part 2: Books, State, and Country Records – Family History Update Webinar”
Donald R. Snow
Categories: RR, IR
HeritageQuest Online (HQO) is a website that is free through libraries by using your public library card bar code. It has many family history records and can be used at home or anywhere you can get to the internet. This class discusses the books and some other databases that are in its collections. The books are mostly genealogy and local and family histories. The databases we will discuss are country, state, and local databases. We will discuss what these are, how to search them, and how to use the results. Other classes will discuss census records, newspapers and obituaries, city directories, and PERSI (Periodical Source Index) on HQO. The notes for this class, with active links and related articles, are posted on my website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html.
