Introduction to Family History

Back by popular demand–this class was a great success when it was offered in January, so we’re offering it again:

Instructor Karen Merrill Martin has been doing genealogy research for over 20 years, and has a certificate from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies affiliated with the University of Toronto.

Family History can be many things, from “I just want to put a scrapbook together of these old photos” to a scholarly text with footnotes and charts, to a novelized version of an ancestor’s life story.

Classes will include: Discussions on how to begin; how to organize files and protect documents; research ideas on vital records, courthouse trips and online resources; how to keep track of your family and research either by hand or computer.

Whether you are a beginner or someone with more experience, there will be lots to learn in this class.

The¬†class will be held on 4 consecutive Thursdays–March 22nd, March 29th, April 5th and April 12th from 2-3:30 pm, and will cost $40. Class is limited to 12 students.
