Genealogy Workshops-single or multi sessions through May 7
April 16, 1:30 pm–3:30 pm$15 – $70
Genealogy is not just for you: It’s for your ancestors and for future generations, and you could be the link that connects them. This four-week class will offer you options for organizing what you already know, as well as for researching and recording your family history. Beginning with a pedigree chart, we’ll discuss Genealogy conventions, best practices and research strategies. We will also touch on how DNA testing can augment your research.
Participants can partake in all of the workshops or just one. While the sessions do build off of one another you do not need to attend the previous sessions to get something out of this course. No prior experience is needed and attendees with specific questions can bring them to the class for discussion.
Note that no food or drink is allowed in the Reading Room. Each session will include a short break. Participants can bring a laptop or wireless device to assist with research but it is not required. All other materials will be provided.
Greenwich resident Janeen Bjork has applied the detective, analytic and presentation skills she garnered in a career of over three decades in TV research to her second career as a Genealogy teacher and presenter. Her engaging and interactive presentation style uses audience participation with actual examples and case studies to prepare students to find the family members and stories that have eluded them.
