Learn Invaluable Tips to Get You Started & to Save Time

ANCESTRY 101: It’s the second most popular hobby in the U.S. (gardening is #1) and it offers a chance to not only discover your family “tree” but to write the narrative of who you are and where you came from. Learn how to get started in this addictive pursuit and find ways to build your tree quickly. Learn how to avoid common mistakes and stay on track. We’ll look at ancestry.com but there will be an overview of other sources (free and paid) as well as DNA sites. If you like detective work and want to know where you came from – this course can be a good start. Great for those working on family stories.
Course# GEN3000 Held on Tues., March 28, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.​
