Many genealogical researchers find their research daunting because of the costs involved. Personal subscriptions to the major databases are costly, purchasing books related to your research, and even the possibility of travel can add up. This lecture will demonstrate to participants how to breakdown genealogical barriers by lowering their research costs by taking advantage of the many resources available for free, learning how to find those resources, and making use of the multitude of resources held at their local public library. Although aimed at the beginning genealogist, this lecture will be of benefit to all family history researchers who want to research for a song!
