Focusing on European arrivals to the eastern seaboard, this genealogy class by the Special Collections Division will discuss historic background as well as sources and strategies commonly used in researching immigrants during this era. 

Class will take place in Computer Lab 2, First Floor, Main Library.

Identifying Your Family Photographs

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but unlocking the stories of unidentified photographs requires some sleuthing. Join a librarian from the Special Collections Division for this class on the tips and techniques for identifying historic photographs. Learn to read clues, such as the type of photograph, clothing and hairstyles, and even whether or not subjects are smiling, to reveal the stories behind every photograph. This class will also take a look at how genealogy databases and local history resources can be used to identify your family photographs. 

Class will take place in Meeting Room 2AB, High Street Level, Main Library.

To register, please contact the Special Collections Division.
