FREE WEBINAR Slave Narratives: Telling the Story of Slavery and Families presented by Ann Staley, CG, CGL, Friday, September 14th, 1:00 pm Central - “The WPA Federal Writers' Project (FWP) of the late 1930's provides us with more than 2,300 first person accounts of former slaves. The slave narratives, with their autobiographical accounts, can provide insight into the institution, rich context, and clues for family research. But how can we use this rich resource? Can they be relied upon? Some of the questions we will discuss are: What is the  history of the slave narratives?Before, during, and after the Civil War. When were they taken? Who were the interviewers? What are the limitations of the narratives? Where can I find the narratives? Offline and Online. How can they be used for research? Names of family members, names of plantations, owners, and their family members; birth, marriage and death information for individuals; context for daily life in particular places.”

Save up to 65% on Dragon Naturally Speaking software, 30% on kidsHeritage books and ore savings at the Genealogy Bargains list for Sunday, November 26, 2017

Save up to 65% on Dragon Naturally Speaking software! Amazon has an AMAZING deal on this voice to text software! I use Dragon everyday and not just because of the arthritis in my hands . . . it is often more convenient just to speak commands into the computer when I am working on genealogy. I couldn’t get half as much research and work done if I didn’t have Dragon Naturally Speaking. I love how it recognizes my voice and “builds” a vocabulary of words and terms that I frequently use. Plus, I draft all my books with Dragon using Microsoft Word . . . I can state commands like “Next line” or “semicolon” and it knows what I mean!

Some advice: the Home version is really all you need and it is available in a download version (no shipping fee) or with a CD installation.

Save up to 65% and don’t miss this sale! Regular price is $99.99 USD, now pay just $35.00 USD! Click HERE to save – via Amazon
