One-Step Webpages:  Lesser-Known Gems


2 years ago, for the Marin County Genealogical Society, Stephen Morse presented his One-Step Webpages for Ellis Island Research. For this month's talk, Stephen moves to problems with genealogical searches to problems with identity theft to problems with DNA, all using his One-Step Webpages.

Who is Stephen Morse?  Before he became known in genealogical circles for his One-Step Webpages, he was a computer professional with a doctorate in electrical engineering. He invented the “great grandfather” of the Pentium Chips that power today’s desktop computers.


After creating the Ellis Island One-Step web page to further his own research, Stephen established an entire collection of One-Step pages to provide searches of data bases on EllisIsland.org, Castlegarden.Org, Ancestry.com and many more. His website is at ww.SteveMorse.org. These searches are easy to use, most effective, and freely available for everyone. He has received numerous awards for his work.


Come hear Steve Morse, an excellent speaker with a fertile sense of humor.

About our Meetings:

The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.

We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in December due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.

Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration; and in September, we have a workshop.
