Have you tried searching for your focus person by name, and come up empty? You've hit all your usual haunts, and don't know what do to next?

A wealth of material is waiting for the researcher who knows how to search a catalog. Are you hooked on JSTOR? Does ArchiveGrid make your day? Are you a WorldCat maven? Is TNA's Discovery, The NRS Catalog, National Archives of Australia or NARA's new catalog your go-to resource?

Come chat about your favorite online library and archive catalogs, share search tips, and talk about what finds you've made.

The chat will occur in The Conference Room all week long. Be sure to register yourself to get an alert each week.

If you have any ideas for future topics, post them as answers to Weekly genealogy chat topics - now a week long event! and they might be used in an upcoming week!
