Discovering Your Roots: Researching and Assembling

Only TWO classes left!

Come down to the Heritage Center on Sunday, October 11th and join us for 
Discovering Your Roots: An Introduction to Genealogy.

We start at 2:00 p.m. in the Sarah McCardle room.

We'll watch Lecture 13: Reseaching in Your Ancestors' Backyards and 
Lecture 14: Assembling An Account of Your Discoveries

There's a short break in between sessions; and many or our class participants arrive early to get some research done in the Heritage Center, which opens at 12 noon on Sundays.

Researching in Your Ancestors' Backyards:  At some point during your detective work, you'll have to actually visit where your ancestors lived.  In this helpful lecture, discover  how to use key local resources you'll need to rely on for success in your research: cemeteries, records of churches and synagogues, city directories, local libraries and historical societies.

Assembling An Account of Your Discoveries:  You've learned how to build context and write an engaging narrative.  Now, examine the best ways to organize your material and assemble a lasting account of your unique heritage. What are the fundamental questions you'll need to answer before writing?  What are the five elements essential to any multi-generational account?

Remember that you can come to the Heritage Center and view any of the sessions for Discovering Your Roots, as well as the session notes.
