Join CGLHS and Stewart Traiman as he describes the research he has undertaken in the fields of genealogy and medicine for 30 years. He will present a wide breadth of source knowledge about historical research, using both online and off-line resources.

Beginners and intermediate researchers alike will learn new skills to help them organize their research, find new resources, and craft citations. Over years of trial and error Stewart has developed a note organization system that works. He uses OneNote, Word, and Excel as needed to track and analyze findings.

Those who are planning to draft a short-form submission for this year's Historic American Landscapes Survey competition will find this a good opportunity refresh and apply their research skills.
