Morse will give a second program, "One-Step Webpages: A Hodgepodge of Lesser-Known Gems," that same day.

Participants will learn about cemetery research, Michigan death records, online research for the British Isles and New England, and the collections at the Library of Michigan and other regional research institutions.
