The Genealogy Center at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne will hold "Family History 101: A Two Day Mini-Course," from 9 am to 5 pm on Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19, part of its Tree Talks Series. Margery Graham, CG, and Steve Myers, MLS, will be the presenters. Each day will feature three lectures and some time to research and consult with Marge, Steve and the Genealogy Center staff. This workshop is an excellent way for the beginner to get started, or for newer researchers to review important concepts and sources. Attendees may bypass any individual session to take advantage of additional research and consultation time.
Lectures for Family History 101 will include census records, vital records (birth, marriage, death) and directories, maps and gazetteers. The registration fee for the Family History 101 mini-course is $50. Checks should be made payable to “ACPL Foundation” and mailed to: Genealogy Center, Allen County Public Library, P.O. Box 2270, Fort Wayne, IN 46801-2270.
