Comparing the Ancestry and Findmypast Websites

Comparing the Ancestry and Findmypast Websites

Ian Waller gives you a chance to think about these two family history sites and compare what they offer in terms of what you need for your family tree.

These two large websites both contain genealogical data and compete commercially for datasets. They both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Ian looks at:
- The sites in-depth;
- The search techniques to get the best results;
- Their errors and idiosyncrasies;
- How to consider the question of which to subscribe to.

There are no special entry requirements for this talk and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists to attend. However, this talk is specifically for people who are searching for their ancestors and are eager to understand the best ways of doing it. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert tutor and lots of detail.
This live Zoom one-hour tutorial starts at 10.30 UK time. The cost is £10.00. For Members of the Society of Genealogists, a discounted price of £6.50 is available. On 26 March we will send an email invitation to all who have booked, with a password and a link.
