Using Ancestry .com (free at the library) to Research Your Genealogy
*Program held in The Hub*
The term ‘genealogy’ is the study of family ancestors with documentation of birth, marriage and death dates through parents, grandparents, great grandparents, as far back as possible. ‘Family history’ is more an in-depth study of the lineage in a family including the life stories of individuals; like their education, occupations, medical conditions, military service, residences, etc.
If you get excited about the thought of “Finding Your Roots,” this is the course for you. At one time or another, we all have thought about our family history. Ken will show you the basics of locating ancestors that you never knew you had using Ancestry.com. We will also use resources that your Library offers and free web- based sites that will help you in your quest. There is nothing like discovering facts and documents about your ancestors, and developing a family tree that can be handed down to the younger generation so they will know their “Roots.” In computing, a Wizard is a help feature of a software package that automates complex tasks by asking the user a series of easy-to-answer questions. The Hub is fortunate to have its own live Wizard – Ken Herbig.
