Dr. Jeanette Gabriel, U Nebraska, Omaha, will address Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalists Sunday, April 2nd, examining the strengths and limitations of online genealogy research. Practical advice will be shared to research family history and find information important to you.  Dr. Gabriel points out that “Many have explored family histories online, but the information can be confusing.”  Individual family stories will be considered within the larger context of local, regional and national history.
