"HIDING IN PLAIN DATABASE:
TIPS and TRICKS for FINDING EXACTLY the RECORDS YOU'RE AFTER"
presented by Dina C. Carson
Searching in databases can produce gold mines of information. They can also be frustrating and inefficient if you do not know how to conduct an effective search. It's important to learn the lingo of databases to take advantage of the advanced search features. You will discover how to: narrow the results, broaden the results, and use bread-crumb navigation. You will learn how the most common typing mistakes can fool even the best searches. Sometimes you must stop looking for people and start looking for data points. As databases become more sophisticated, you will learn how to master the sliders and bring on the browse. If you have searched a database and not found what you were looking for, after this talk, you will want to look again.
 
Dina Carson has been involved in genealogy for more than two decades. She is currently the coordinator of the Boulder Pioneers Project, which is a comprehensive look at the original source documents for Boulder County during the Territorial Period of 1859-1876. She is the author of more than twenty annotated indexes of Boulder County source materials, and lectures frequently to genealogical societies throughout the state. Dina is the author of 10 new books about publishing and genealogy including, Set Yourself Up to Self-Publish: A Genealogist's Guide and Publish Your Family History: A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing the Stories of Your Ancestors. In early 2018, Dina was the coordinator and primary instructor for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy's course, Writing and Publishing Family Histories in the Digital Age. As owner of Iron Gate Publishing, Dina brings her experience with all phases of book publishing to help first-time, self-publishers create quality family or local histories that are both believable and achievable.
 
BOOK NOOK will be open before and after the General Meeting!
