Last Saturday of the Month (except December), 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Looking for that elusive ancestor? Want to learn more about which family history databases can assist you in your research? Join the Roots to Branches Club, a group of enthusiastic genealogists who cooperate on research projects and learn from an experienced library staff member about little-known databases and research tips, which aid in digging for one’s roots. Participants will explore and practice various research techniques and, together, work in an environment where the collective knowledge and experience of group members helps everyone to jump over the research hurdles that inevitably appear in all of our family trees.
Meetings begin with a short discussion on, and demonstration of, a research tip, technique or database. Time is then devoted to discussing general questions or research challenges. Newcomers to the hobby will have the opportunity to draw on the knowledge of more experienced genealogists.
If you own a laptop computer, you are encouraged to bring it with you to Club sessions and utilize the Library’s in-house subscription to Ancestry.com, Library Edition. We also suggest bringing a USB flash drive / memory stick on which to save any documents or information you discover, for later perusal and use at home.
