Ancestry.com is among the world's largest databases of digitized primary source material. It contains a wealth of information for genealogists and historians alike. In this workshop, you will learn how to find individual names in Ancestry's database and how to make sure you found the individual that you were looking for (after all, there are a lot of John Browns and Jane Smiths in there).
