Family History Assistance Day at the Largo Library

The Pinellas Genealogy Society and the Largo Library will sponsor a Family History Assistance Day at the library on 13 March from 1 pm to 4 pm.

Volunteer researchers will be on hand to help people do actual research to get them started in studying their family history. If you have been curious about the use of Ancestry.com and other research websites, or if you have been thinking about researching your family but have not gottena round to it, this may be the event for you.

There will also be volunteers available to help in the use of print resources in the Genealogy Center should you wish to explore that.

All participants need do is collect known information about their ancestors, write it down and bring it with them. Useful information would be birth, marriage, and death dates and places (if applicable) for at least parents and grandparents. More is better, but the key is collecting what is known and bringing it along. Volunteers will then use that information to begin research for additional information.

There will be plenty of handouts available that will also help in further research. Light snacks will be available.

This program should be an overall winner. Is this the first year that you offered this?
