Beginning Genealogy Part 2: Finding Your Information

Note: This workshop was rescheduled from the original date on Saturday, March 24. Bill Curtis of the Manitoba Genealogical Society introduces the basics of genealogical research. In Part One, you will be a family history detective and find clues in a case study. Using these clues, you will learn how to overcome roadblocks to reach your goals. In Part Two, you will learn where to find personal information about individual ancestors both on and off the Internet. For more information about genealogy and local history, please visit the library's Local History and Genealogy Resources Info Guide.
