Today, we received the Spring 2015 issue of the Brecksville Bulletin in the mail. It’s also available online at <http://brecksville.oh.us/News%20and%20Events/news_pdf/2015/15_Spring_Bulletin.pdf>.
It included the following announcement of a class that I will be presenting for the next six weeks beginning next Wednesday, Mar 25, at the Human Services Center.
Grow Your Own Family Tree
We’ve all thought about tracing the roots of our family tree and now you’ve got a chance to finally do it. Back by popular demand, genealogist and Brecksville resident, Wal[y Huskonen has created a program to help residents trace their family heritage.
Two-hour sessions begin Wednesday, March 25 from 1 to 3 and continue each Wednesday afternoon through May 13 at the Brecksville Human Services Center. You’ll work with Wally on creating your own ancestor chart and family group sheet. It’s a fascinating experience. Each session is limited to six people to enable hands-on instruction employing the Center’s three public compurers. And it’s free!
Register by calling the Human Services Center at 526-2499. Be sure to bring along any basic family tree information that you possess especially names of relatives who were possibly counted in the 1930 or 1940 census. Sorry Brecksville residents only because of iimited class size.
I’m looking forward to working with residents to pass along some tips and guidance about genealogical and family history research. I conducted such a class back in 2011 and found it rewarding to work with all those who signed up during the Brecksville Bicentennial celebration that year.
