No classes are held in July and August when we take a summer break.
Advance registration and reservations are not required. The classes are free and open to the public.
Pick the date you can attend. This is a one-time basic course for the beginner, repeated each month. However, feel free to come for a refresher as desired. Attendees will be introduced to thinking genealogically through the exploration of the following:
- Introduction to the census using Ancestry.com
- Pedigree Charts and Family Group Sheets
- Other Major Record Groups
Attendees should dress comfortably. Consider bringing a seat cushion and bottled water.
