July Highlight: Stephen Morse on One-Step Pages, July 27

Steve Morse, creator of One-Step Pages
A rare opportunity to learn from Stephen Morse, creator of the One-Step Website, an outstanding online search aid which has been recognized with multiple awards from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, the National Genealogical Society, and the Association of Professional Genealogists, among others.

Over the course of the afternoon, Steve will give two presentations:

One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools
The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database.  Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census.  Over the years it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay.  This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.

Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman
This lecture presents a case study using the One-Step Webpages as well as other websites to develop a family history. It illustrates how, with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can be obtained. It also shows how to obtain records in spite of name misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.

The class is held Saturday, July 27, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the CGS Library.
