- Local societies: who are they, where are they, what do they do?
- Multicultural issues in genealogy and how to deal with them
- Primary sources for finding ancestors or the genealogy of ethnic groups: American Indian, African American, Jewish or others
- Partnering with local societies
- Preservation problems in ethnic genealogy and local history
- How to initiate cooperative projects diplomatically
- Case studies, what works and what doesn't
- Case studies for library and historical society collaboration
- Case studies for library and genealogical society collaboration
