Connecting to Your Roots Using Genealogy Online Research

Ancestor HuntAre you planning a family reunion this year?  Do you have photos of family members that you can't identify or you know little about the people in those photos? 

Use the next family gathering at a funeral, wedding or holiday celebration to begin your search for your family history. 

Motivate your children to learn about their ancestors by teaching them basic genealogy skills.  Teach them to create a family tree that can be passed on to the next generation. A book that may be of interest to you is Ancestor Hunt: Finding Your Family Online by Nancy Shepherdson.

On Tuesday, March 25 at 1:30 p.m., find tools to explore your family history using the library's databases. This demonstration will include searching the obituaries and death notices in historical newspapers. Discover Heritage Quest. Learn how to search the U.S. Census data.
