Beginning Genealogy returns!

Posted on

On Thursday, Aug. 16 the Library will be hosting a sharing session and discussion about Beginning Genealogy. Barbara Schlafer is returning to facilitate this discussion on how and where to begin your genealogical journey. The discussion will be free and help provide you with some of the tools that will enable you to start finding your roots, focusing on your individual interests in genealogy, and getting started on gathering your family stories. We’ll also look into utilizing resources both physical and on the internet, and how to organize your research. Space could become limited and advanced registration is required.

As a special treat, there will be a door prize given at the end of the session: a copy of Family Tree Maker 2012, being donated by Ancestry.com. To qualify for the drawing, you must be present and pre-registered for the event.

WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 16 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

WHERE: In the Robins Air Force Base Library, Building 905

QUESTIONS / HOW TO REGISTER: If you have any questions or would like to register then please send us an email at robinsbaselibrary@gmail.com and put “Beginning Genealogy” in the subject line. Please register by Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 8 PM if you’re interested.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Beginning Genealogy.

Posted on

On Thursday, Feb. 16 the Library will be hosting a discussion about Beginning Genealogy. We’re calling it “a discussion” rather than a class or seminar because our presenter, Ms. Barbara Schlafer, wants to be prepared to deal with the needs with anyone who comes, be it the person starting off on genealogy as a hobby or the more experienced researcher (for example, if you wanted to join the Daughters of the American Revolution, that requires specific documentation). Our Beginning Genealogy session is free and will help provide you with some of the tools that will enable you to start finding your roots.

The discussion will definitely focus on your individual interests in genealogy and then getting started in gathering your family stories, discovering and utilizing resources that are both physical and on the internet, and how to organize your research. Space could become limited and advanced registration is required.
