Genealogy Escape Room with Thomas MacEntee
Wednesday, January 27
Genealogy Escape Room with Thomas MacEntee  (Other Genealogical Events)
11:00 am to 12:30 pm
GoToWebinar
Imagine you are trapped in an archive and the only way out is to solve a series of genealogy research puzzles. Are you up to the challenge? Are you ready for Genealogy Escape Room? Based on the popular escape room concept, Genealogy Escape Room turns the typical webinar format upside down! Each registrant will receive a Case Review File used to solve a series of online research tasks BEFORE the live webinar takes place. The webinar is the “reveal” where a step-by-step review of each puzzle, task, and clue all the way to the final “key” to open the door. Genealogy methodology concepts will be summarized before announcing who escaped first!
 
This event is NOT sponsored by Santa Barbara Genealogical Society. If you wish to attend you must REGISTER HERE and attend on your own.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information with the GoToWebinar link to join the webinar and instructions for installing (if necessary) the required GoToWebinar software on your computer.
