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.
WHEN: Thursday, February 16, 2012 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Beginning Genealogy” in the subject line. Please register by Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 4 PM. We look forward to hearing from you!
