Learn how to research your family history
Have you ever thought about researching your family history but didn’t know where to begin?
The public library can help. Elysia Hamelin, librarian in the special collections department, will teach a free introduction to genealogy class on June 24 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Registration is required and begins June 10.
Hamelin, a trained archivist with a master’s degree in library science in archiving, will review the first steps you need to take to begin your research, the types of records that are available, where to look for information and what resources the library has.
