“Path to the Past:
Using Periodical Literature in Genealogical Research”

Speaker: Diane Barbour, PLCGS

One of the most often overlooked sources for genealogists is written literature, including genealogical periodicals published since the mid-1800s. Using the Periodical Source Index (PERSI) opens the door to this literature. This lecture will describe how to use PERSI to locate articles pertaining to family research.

Diane has been doing genealogy for about 17 years. In June 2012, she graduated from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies at the University of Toronto to complete her Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies or PLCGS. She is the past President of Broomfield Genealogical Society and is currently on the education committees for the Boulder Genealogical Society and the Longmont Genealogical Society.
