Explore Your Ancestry


Adult Enrichment / Curious Minds -
Fall 2022

We’ll use free familysearch.com and ancestry.com accounts (trial or paid) to advance our DNA, family tree, and genealogy research. Sessions will focus on census and vital records sources, newspaper sources, DNA cousins, DNA match grouping, and a “requests” session. Each class will include slides with prepared examples that we’ll work through in the first hour, then we’ll actively practice researching the theme for the night as well as our individual research goals.
