This class will introduce you to the many features of Ancestry Library Edition and show you how to do efficient and effective searches. When possible, time for practice searching is also provided. Because electronic resources are used, basic computer skills are recommended.

This class will take place in Computer Lab 2 on the First Floor of Main Library.

Researching Your Immigrant Ancestors Before 1820

Tracing ancestors before 1820 can be extremely difficult due to a lack of documentation and limited accessibility of surviving records. Focusing on European immigrants to the eastern seaboard, this class is an overview of strategies and sources commonly used in researching early immigrants. Please note: This class is geared toward genealogy researchers with intermediate research skills.

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