New classes for 2014

Welcome to our Family History Classes for 2014!  We hope you will find a class that will help you begin your work to identify your family members and enjoy this journey of research!

Bring a friend with you, a relative or a teenager who can learn with you so you can use what you have learned in these classes at home.   Millions of names are being added weekly to the huge bank of Family History sources.  Come and find out more about them and how you can assess them to locate your family ancestors.
