Genealogy 101: Before You Research, Let’s Chat

Register Today!

What are you hoping to find? It’s easy to jump right into big databases and get lost in a sea of clicking. Let’s chat about how resourceful our memories are, and of those around us, while we step back to basics in oral histories, tracing records and creating timelines to build your story.

Lauren Peightel, coordinator of genealogy and family programs, will walk you through what the best question are to ask your family members and which state repositories and local libraries will help you take your initial research to the next level. Also, discover how researching a place can unlock further resources and a better understanding of your past.

$20; $15 members
