Jump-start your family research in the New Year by signing up for a beginning genealogy class coming up this Saturday, Jan 10, 2015, at Western Reserve Historical Society. With the theme “Opening the Door to Family History”, the three-hour class is sponsored by the Genealogical Committee, an auxiliary of WRHS. It will run from from noon to 3 pm.
Focus will be on gathering documents, vital records, and census information. To encourage you to attend, the Gen Committee invites you to register yourself for the class and bring one family member or friend at NO EXTRA COST. Presenters will be Pat Epperson and Heber MacWilliams, both Genealogical Committee members and experienced researchers. Plan to spend time after the class in the Research Library applying your new skills.
Registration fee is $15, which covers the cost of a packet of handout materials. Register online at www.wrhs.org or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
