Join us for an introduction to some of the most common online services for researching your family history. The big three services are Ancestry, MyHeritage and FindMyPast. Each one has strengths and weaknesses. Presenter Richard Reid will guide you through the differences of each of the services and look at some of the new exciting tools that are available online. During the presentation you will be introduced to over a dozen lesser known paid subscription services.

Richard is the director of Friends of Irish Research and the director of the Davis Allen Lambert Library which are based in Brockton, MA. The Friends provide training seminars, host a website full of research resources and provide consultations in the Brockton facility or via email.

He has co-authored four computer books, and established several computer training centers in New England. He is an active member of MSOG, MGC, APG, NEAPG, PCGI, GANS, WMGS, Alliance of Massachusetts Genealogists, and the Cape Breton Genealogical and Historical Association.
