Computer Basics - Instructor, Kim Holley - If your computer skills aren't what you’d like them to be, if you have problems creating files, using a flash drive, we have a class for you! Kim is teaching a Basic computer class, it will be “hands-on” and held in our new computer lab. Tues, June 4th and Sat, June 22nd. (You didn't know we have a new computer lab? It’s coming soon)

Ancestral Quest Workshop (hands-on) - Instructor, Wendall Eves - This is a hands-on opportunity to use the genealogical data management program Ancestral Quest with an instructor to give guidance when necessary. The focus will be documentation and synchronization.  We would appreciate pre-registration at fhcoakland@gmail.com or 510-531-3905 as the class is limited to 8 participants. Bring a flash drive or a laptop computer if you have one.

Introduction to Genealogy - Instructor, Janice Sellers Have you watched the Ancestry.com commercials and thought, “I want to do that“? Have you asked questions and made notes about your family, and now feel ready to take the next step? Would you like to know what genealogical research involves and how to start? Would you like a computer program to help you keep your information organized? This is the class for you. Genealogy is neither as easy as the commercials and TV programs make it sound nor as complicated as it used to be. Take the first step -- come to our free class and find out if this is the hobby for you.
