Finding your roots!

If you have seen the TV shows such as “Who Do You Think You Are?”, “Genealogy Roadshow” or “Finding Your Roots”, you may have wondered about your family history. The library will be offering a 6-part course in starting your family research. Come to all 6 classes, or just the ones of interest to you. We will emphasize the online resources available at the library and other materials and websites available for free. The classes are lecture/demonstration format. The classes are very informal with questions encouraged. Everyone has a story, come and learn how to find your story!

Family History Class 3: Fold 3

We will explore the material available on Fold 3, a library subscription you can access from home. This gives access to military records and some interesting Chicago area files.
