Free Zoom presentation on an important genealogy research tool.
Steve Morris will present his One-Step Webpages, a free website to aid in genealogical searches and much more.
The One-Step Website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterward it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 Web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.
Steve Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from IAJGS, the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, the first ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies. In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, and written four textbooks and holds four patents.
