Monthly Meeting – October 6th, 2022 – “Using the Internet Archive for Genealogy” by Dayna Jacobs, AG®

Very few genealogists have tapped into the resources of the Internet Archive, a free-to-use worldwide repository of over 38 million books and texts, 13 million audio recordings, 7 million videos, and 4 million images—-not to mention 624 billion archived web pages. We will explore a sampling of records any genealogist can find in this vast resource, and demonstrate how to download them, check them out, or create your own personal archives with favorites. Who wouldn’t want to tap into a resource whose “mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge?”

Dayna Jacobs, AG®, is credentialed in U.S. Mountain West and U.S. Southwest states research and has been teaching and mentoring genealogists since the mid-1990s. She has presented at conferences in the Pacific Northwest, New England, Utah, California, and most recently at the National Genealogical Society Conference in Sacramento. She lives in King City, California and has been on the staff of the Monterey County Family History Center for 25+ years.

The Zoom meeting will start at 7:00 pm sharp. Zoom meeting details will be sent by invitation only. If you are not a member and wish to attend, send an email with your email address to our Membership VP, Marilyn Ruccello .
