The semi-annual Family History Assistance Day, co-sponsored by the Largo Public Library and the Pinellas Genealogy Society is returning on October 8, 2016. This is an event that offers personal, one-on-one, family research assistance.
Bring your family history notes as a starting point and a USB drive to record new discoveries. You and a volunteer researcher will hunt for data online to get started on your genealogy or to extend your family finds by breaking through a brick wall in your research. This is an especially helpful event if you are just getting started in genealogy. You can learn research techniques as well as find family information.
The event begins at 12pm in the Local History Room and Reading Room on the second floor of the Largo Public Library and runs until 4pm. Volunteer researchers will assist attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Volunteers will also be available in the Genealogy Center to introduce visitors to the print collection through tours and will assist on the use of materials.
Genealogy research is most successful when shared. This event provides that opportunity. If you can’t make it, tell your friends, especially those who are new to family history research.
