The Dalton Free Public Library will be holding a 5 week series of introductory classes in online genealogy research.
Alan Horbal, longtime genealogy researcher and instructor, will teach you how to get started with your own family history research.
Over the course of 5 weeks, you’ll learn the basics of:
Ancestry.com Library Edition – As of December 2013, the Ancestry.com provided access to approximately 12.7 billion, 191 million uploaded photos and more than 16 million uploaded stories.
Familysearch.org – FamilySearch has records that span billions of names across hundreds of collections, including birth, marriage, death, census, and other original records. Most of these records are indexed, so you can search for records that identify your ancestors.
Stevenmorse.org – Records from Ellis Island and other East Coast ports.
The Course will be held from 10:00-12:00 on Wednesday mornings. It will begin on October 8th and will run for 5 weeks. To participate, it’s necessary that you have some basic computer skills, including internet use.
Space is limited, so we suggest you sign up at the circulation desk. You can also call us at 684-6112 to reserve a spot.
