About this Event

Today, there are a number of tools you can use to delve into your family history. But do you know what you’re looking at or looking for once you’ve decided to research?

If you are just starting to work on your family history, learn the basics with Rebecca Knight, associate librarian in Reference and Instructional Services, during this workshop on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, from 10 a.m.-noon.

Using the Ancestry Library Edition database, you will discover how to search for census records and city directories and develop strategies for finding and recording data. During the workshop, you will get an overview of the types of records that contain genealogical information, and walk away able to identify typical characteristics of city directories and where to find local city directories collections.

This workshop is open to the public. While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited.
