Frustrated when your searches on Ancestry don't yield the results you were hoping for? Then this Zoom presentation is for you! Topics include the backstage side of Ancestry's search function, the causes of ineffective searches, various ways to launch searches, the four types of searches with their corresponding search forms, techniques to refine your search to get the information you seek, and a roundup of some of Ancestry's lesser-known search tools. A basic working knowledge of Ancestry is assumed and helpful, but not required.
