African American Research Workshop - Instructor, Genealogist Alvis Ward Jr. - This is an ongoing free hands-on research workshop comprised of African Americans, also referred to as Black or Afro-American, or those who harmonize with Sub-Saharan Africa, with ancestry, citizenship, or residency in the United States. The workshop is an interactive exchange of research tools, methods and systems, and discussions necessary for progress at individual levels of family histories and genealogies impacted by the 16th Century removal of Africans to America as slaves. No pre-registration is required. For additional information E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Family History Workshop : Write Your History in Stories.- Instructor, Kim Miller, staff genealogist - Does writing your personal history sound intimidating? Does "I was born ..." seem like a boring way to start? How about writing your memories one story at a time? Come once or come monthly, come when you can. Set aside the 2nd Thursday of each month and spend an afternoon jump starting your memory. Write one story each time you come, and you could greet 2018 with 11 stories for your personal history.
Hispanic Research Workshop - Need some help with your Spanish research? More comfortable speaking and reading Spanish? Come work with our Spanish Speaking Misioneros; Hermana Marisela Meskus and Hermana Wiemer.
Irish Research Online - Instructor, Janice Sellers APG - Once upon a time, searching for Irish ancestors required learning the townland of origin, or at least the county, before you could even consider crossing the Atlantic. While that is still helpful, it is now often possible to find a family without that information by using the wealth of records that have gone online in the last couple of years. This class will cover some of the many resources available online for Irish research.
Swedish Research Workshop - Need some help with your Swedish research? Join our experts (Beryl and Wade Olofson) on Thursdays between 10A and 4P for some individual assistance. No appointment necessary.
