As part of its monthly Poolside Chat series, the Florida State Genealogical Society will host a free webinar, Using PERSI Like a Pro, presented by Cari Taplin, on Thursday, April 15, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.
This lecture will give the audience a look into Allen County Public Library’s PERSI, its history and partnership with Findmypast, tips and techniques for getting the most out of this valuable genealogical resource, and how societies can get involved. We will learn about this valuable and overlooked resource through several mini-case studies.
“The Periodical Source Index, or PERSI, is the largest subject index to genealogy and local history periodical articles in the world. Created by the staff of the Allen County Public Library Foundation and the ACPL’s Genealogy Center, PERSI is widely recognized as a vital tool for genealogical researchers.” — FamilySearch Wiki.
Registration is required. A recording will be available afterward for society members.
