Introduction to Genealogy

Whether you are just getting started or need to break down a brick wall in your genealogical research, this workshop will help you to work on your family history.  Starting with pen and paper and introducing the “proper” genealogical forms, we will explore how and where to research your family history.  We will also talk about Internet research for genealogy as well as things you can do now to help others in your family who are researching their ancestors.  Along the way, we will discuss family lore, historical fact, tracking your sources and interviewing living relatives.  There will be handouts for all and time for questions.  Learn more in this interview with Seema.
