Steve Morse Coming to Cleveland In June

On Wednesday 6 June 2007 at 7:00 pm, Steve Morse of One-Step Web pages fame will be the featured speaker at the meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland. His topic will be: "One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools."

The meeting will be free and open to the public. It will be at Menorah Park, 27100 Cedar Road, Beachwood, Ohio.

The One-Step website began as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database, expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census, and has continued to evolve. It now includes over 100 web-based tools divided into twelve separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay.

This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.

This program is co-sponsored by several local genealogical societies.
