Class Schedule

At 2:30 pm the last Sunday of February, March, and April 2015 we will have a lesson series covering:

  • Family Tree

Family Tree is an updated approach to organizing and preserving your genealogy online.
Family Tree is free, available to everyone, and provides an easy way to share information,
compare research, and go further faster by working together.
In Family Tree you can:
• See what the system already contains about your ancestors.
• Work with others to fill in missing information and correct errors.
• Add sources and explanations to show that information is accurate.
• Find and merge records that are about the same person.
• Add photos and stories of your ancestors.

  • What Sources Offer

This class introduces types of sources, where to find them, and what information they can give about your ancestors. We will cover US Census records, British Census records, Finnish Church books, pension records, birth and death records, marriage records, cemetery records, probate records, land records, etc.

  • Strategies to Find Missing Relatives

This class will focus on strategies to find missing family members, including how to determine if you have the correct person for ancestors with common names.
