Room 1

Catherine Schweinsberg Rood Library

9:30 am until 11:30 am

Those people who are new to genealogy will learn the basics. 

Every person who is doing their family research, at some time needs to go back to the basics and re-evaluate the work they have done. 

Beginners will learn how to build their "Genealogy toolbox" and the long-time researchers will be able to go back and make their Genealogy toolbox work better for them. 

The two-day workshop will use Thomas MacEntee's book, 

"Genealogy Do-Over Workbook"

Our instructors will adjust the Workbook to give the attendees a chance to re-evaluate their work. Possible break a few bad habits they may have picked up along the way. Putting everyone on the road to success with their Family History.
