The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. 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 e-bay.  This presentation will describe the range of genealogical tools available and give the highlights of each one.

Stephen Morse, developer of the One-Step Website, has received numerous national and international awards for the creation and expansion of this vital finding aid. 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 more than 40 years ago.
