The study of genealogy can be an incredibly engaging experience for those interested in learning more about the histories of the ancestors who have influenced their lives. This workshop introduces the study of family history. Attendees will become familiar with basic concepts of research, including locating sources, identifying categories of sources, and organizing information. The workshop is designed to give participants a systematic approach to researching family histories. Presented by Kris Rzepczynski, Archives of Michigan.
For in-person attendees, refreshments will be available. Lunch is on your own. Materials are included with your registration. Any handouts from the presenter will be sent to remote attendees after the workshop.
