The Fishersville Main Library is hosting a three-part series on Genealogy Basics at 10 a.m. March 1, 8 and 15. Each week will focus on a different aspect of researching family history with presenters from the Augusta County Genealogical Society.
Topics will include an introduction to genealogical research, constructing family “trees,” accessing Ancestry.com for free, and using archives such as court records, census schedules and military service logs. Participants also will receive an orientation to the special collections of the Augusta County Library and the Augusta County Genealogical Society Library.
“The library is seeing an increase in people who are interested in learning more about their family’s history,” said Adult Services Librarian Sarah Skrobis. “This series will provide a solid starting place and will also showcase the variety of resources available for free at the library.”
The Augusta County Genealogical Society Library has relocated to the Fishersville branch of the county library. Volunteers from the society staff the space from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
The workshops are free, and those attending can pre-register by stopping by in person or calling us at 885-3961.Share this with friends:
