Start the Year by Getting Started with Genealogy!

On this day, we'd like to remind you about our Getting Started with Genealogy class on Thursday, February 17th, 2011, from 2-4:30pm in the Heritage Room.

In this free, informal session, we'll walk you through the basics of researching your family history. The class is designed to help you begin the construction of your family tree, and to teach you about the resources available in Athens that will be useful to you. The class includes handouts, and is useful even if you aren't looking for relatives in Georgia.

Free and open to the public, but registration is required. Call (706) 613-3650, ext. 350 or email us at to register.


  1. Seems rather counter-intuitive to have this in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday. You've effectively limited your audience to retirees & stay-at-home moms.

    Would like to attend one of these, but such scheduling prevents it. Well done.

  2. We find much smaller attendance at these classes when they are held after dark, so we schedule evening classes during daylight saving time periods. Please check our schedule later in the Spring.
