Yesterday I attended the Ancestry Day sponsored by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Ancestry.com. You can Try Ancestry.com and get 14 Days FREE!
The event was held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center. I thought it well worth the admission charge and the trip. (I live about an hour away.) Juliana Smith and Lisa Arnold of Ancestry.com gave excellent talks on what is available on Ancestry.com and how to best use it. Several speakers discussed the holding of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and how to use those. I learned quite a bit and look forward to using it. And then of course it was good to be in a room with several hundred genealogists.
I have been using Ancestry for several years and still learned more about it. I would guess a newcomer to Ancestry would learn quite a bit too. I am a new member of Historical Society of Pennsylvania. So it was good getting on overview of some of their holdings.
