Canfield to Offer Introduction to Family History
The Martha Canfield Library announces a series of four family history seminars to be held on Sundays in April and May from 2 to 4 p.m.
Part One on Sunday, April 10, will cover collecting your family genealogy and where to find information; Part Two on April 24 will focus on how to organize your findings and software for genealogy; Part Three on May 15 will focus on proving your family tree; and Part 4 on May 29 will discuss sources, the use of DNA and tips on spending your genealogy money wisely.
There will be time for actual online research to develop skills. The library has nine laptop computers available, and you are welcome to bring your own computer to connect through our high-speed Wi-Fi connection.
