How to Maximize Your Search Using Fold3
With a collection of over 500 million indexed and digitized records, Fold3 is one of the go-to resources for any family historian researching their military ancestors. Join us as we welcome Allen County Public Library senior librarian Elizabeth Hodges for an introduction to Fold3 and some tips and tricks to optimize your search results.
Elizabeth Hodges, a Louisiana native, is a historian, educator, and genealogist. She received her Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. While pursuing her Master’s in Irish and Irish American Studies at the New York University, she became an educator at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York City. Elizabeth’s love and fascination with genealogy and family history grew exponentially through sharing the stories of immigrants, migrants, and refugees who once resided in a historic tenement in lower Manhattan with visitors. Upon graduating from New York University, she began working for the New York Public Library in the Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division as a page while pursuing her Master of Science in Library and Information Science from St. John’s University in New York.
Elizabeth first began researching her own genealogy at the age of eighteen, and since then she has focused on tracing her ancestors’ journeys within southwest Louisiana, New York, Ireland, England, and beyond. While her specialties and interests lie in Irish migration/immigration, New York genealogy, the experiences of immigrant women, archival management, and Louisiana genealogy and local history, she is always eager to learn and explore other aspects of genealogy research.
