Event Details

The One-Step website [ https://stevemorse.org/ ] started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards 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 lastminute bidding on e-bay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one. This talk has been delivered 192 times (as of  Aug 7, 2021)
Stephen 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 the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, 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, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today’s Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution 40 years ago.
