With most people spending more time at home, there’s never been a better time than the present to research your family history. In Basement Genealogy, a new online series, Library Director Steve Read will offer advice and tips on a variety of topics, coming to viewers live from his basement.
The programs are designed for beginners and those who are relatively new to researching their family history, though genealogists of all experience levels will likely find something that interests them. The first program is “Where Are We?” which will cover the importance of using maps to aid in your research and where to find them. It will take place on Thursday, April 16 at 10:00 a.m.
This class is the first interactive virtual program presented by the library and is an experiment — so please join us and we will all see what happens! The program is free of charge and all of the resources which are discussed are free and easily accessible from home.
The program will be held on Zoom. If you would like to attend, please email Shannon Brake at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you information which will enable you to access it.
Additional classes will be scheduled in the future.
