Tracing your family history can be a rewarding experience which can lead you on an exciting journey into the past.  Who you are today has been influenced by the combined actions and decisions made by all of your ancestors long ago, so to better understand the present, take a look at the lives of your ancestors in the past! Our weekly class is suitable for anyone with an interest in genealogy even if you are a complete beginner.  We will help and guide you as you  search online for your ancestors using popular websites and research tools.  Share your experiences with like minded people who enjoy learning about local history.
