Last Saturday I went to the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society monthly lecture. IT is free and what you have to do is pay $5 for the parking. The $5 parking in Pittsburgh is really cheap.
The lecture was on using the New Family Search web site. I have ALWAYS had trouble searching on this site, which admittedly I thought was operator error. My theory was proven correct.
She talked for two hours and I learned a lot. I was searching for too detailed of information. I should look under generalities and the lecturer said that if it does not come up by the search it doesn't mean it is not there.
For example I was searching for Armstrong County, PA and it would not come up. So I did as she suggested, I put in Pennsylvania, Armstrong and a lot of things magically appeared. Each section has subsections and I have found church records and I now have to make a list and order then from the local LDS Family History Center.
This searching should keep me busy for a long time. Now, hopefully I can break some of self imposed brick walls.
