Event Description
Finding Digitized NARA Content

Learn about the records of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the herculean task of digitizing them. In addition to the millions of records available through the NARA catalog, many genealogical organizations have worked to scan records as well, leading to many more that can be found by digging through the Ancestry and FamilySearch catalogs.  

Alec Ferretti is a New-York-City-based professional genealogist, who has worked for the Wells Fargo Family & Business History Center, researching family histories for high net worth clients.  Alec specializes in the genealogy of 20th century immigrants to the United States.  He is a regular lecturer at genealogical societies and conferences.  He serves as the President of the New York Genealogy & Technology Group, serves actively on the Board of Directors of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and on the Board of Reclaim the Records, a nonprofit dedicated to wrangling public records from obstinate government agencies.
