The Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP) will host Hidden in Plain Sight: Searching Image-Only Collections online on Tuesday, March 28, from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
Millions of historical records have been digitized online but are not searchable by name, leading many family researchers to conclude they do not exist. Katy Bodenhorn Barnes from Legacy Tree Genealogists in Salt Lake City joins the HSP and encourages researchers to go beyond the name search approach. Barnes will demonstrate how researchers can make use of image-only record collections such as deeds, diaries, church records, and special collection items on a variety of genealogy websites.
