Genealogical Research For Beginners

Description: "Start Climbing Your Family Tree: genealogical research for beginners," Tuesday, May 22, 2018, 6:30 pm. This 90-minute program will introduce the process and sources for genealogical research for everyone, whether their roots stretch back to the Mayflower or their family first arrived in the United States in the twentieth century.

Diana Ross McCain and Carol R. Whitmer will explain the first steps for gathering information from family records and relatives, and recording it on charts. They will introduce participants to the most useful online resources for the genealogist and explain what these websites contain and how to access and make use of them. They will also debunk the belief that for genealogists "everything is on the Internet" and discuss the wealth of records still accessible only on microfilm or in libraries, archives, and historical societies (http://comehometoct.com).

Program will be in the Whiton Auditorium, 100 North Main St., Manchester.

This is a free event and no registration is required.
