Genealogy Club

Interested in starting or continuing your family tree? Come join the library’s genealogy group to help you get going or solve research conundrums. Learn how to best use Ancestry Library Edition and other relevant sources. We will meet on the last Wednesday of each month from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the library’s Historical Room. Facilitated by librarian Chris Woods. Bring your questions, your stories, your photos, and your history to this lively group of researchers. No experience necessary, and no sign-up required – just come on the night. Hope to see you there!
As always, reference librarians are available here at the Ventress Library to help you with genealogy questions and sign you in to Ancestry Library edition and other resources.
