From 10 am until noon, Becky and Ethel from the Genealogical Society will lead a presentation about getting started in genealogy, resources available in Adams County and on the Internet, and how to avoid mistakes in research and taking oral histories.

After a lunch break, participants can get hands-on assistance as they begin their own genealogy projects, learn to access online research sites, and begin a record-keeping format. Both beginning and more experienced genealogy hobbyists are welcome to attend. AmeriCorps volunteer technology trainer Melissa Downs will help participants with the computer skills needed to conduct genealogy research. This event is free, but advance registration is required.
