"Ancestry Detectives 101" Genealogy Workshop
offered at the Brainerd Public Library
The Kitchigami Regional Library System is sponsoring a beginning workshop for library users interested in tracing their family genealogy. Using library resources, the Ancestry Detectives 101 workshop will be offered at the Brainerd Public Library on Thursday, April 14 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. As Ancestry Detectives you are invited to find out who you are by searching for your ancestors. The workshops will provide an overview of the genealogical process and the resources that are available online at the library using Ancestry Library Edition and other resources. "Having these resources available to library users is a wonderful asset for beginners in exploring their family genealogy and learning how to locate and process the information they find," says Rosemary Susens, instructor for the workshops.
It is recommended that those who register for the classes have a basic knowledge of computer use. The classes are free. Registration is required and space is limited. To register, call the Brainerd Public Library at 218-829-5574.
The Kitchigami Legacy Genealogy Project is an ongoing project, made possible with State of Minnesota Legacy Amendment funds to preserve Arts and Cultural Heritage. Additional beginning workshops and genealogy topics will be offered in the future.
