For those interested in tracing their family ancestry, genealogist Tim Dollens will share tips on the research process and guide you to helpful library resources.
Genealogist and staff member Tim Dollens will teach you how to trace your ancestors using two genealogy databases available for free through the library-Ancestry.com and HeritageQuest.
The genealogy database HeritageQuest has been redesigned and now includes complete U.S. census data from 1930 and 1940, U.S. city directories and other new content. Join genealogist and staff member Tim Dollens to tour this improved tool, which is available free to library cardholders through www.dbrl.org.
Professional genealogist Beth Foulk will talk about researching family history going back to the American Revolution. Learn where to start, how to find the best resources and how to get results by using soldiers' service and pension records, unit narratives and other types of documentation. Beth has been the featured or keynote speaker at many state and national genealogy conferences, and she lectures on a wide range of topics.
Local genealogist Tim Dollens wants to help you prepare to plunge into the fun of genealogy research for the upcoming fall season. Ready, set, let's dive right in!
