Second Heritage Room Genealogy Class at the Athens Community Council on Aging

On this day, we'd like you to know that the Heritage Room's second class at the Athens Community Council on Aging will be on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012, from 1:00pm to 2:30pm in the Harris Room's ACCA Hoyt Street location. The title of the class is Searching for Your Family Members: A Surprising Genealogical Treasure Trove.

If you missed the first class, don't worry! Each class is independent, so if you are set on the basics, but want to know more about tax records or using city directories in research, just sign up now for the March 7th class.  The class is free to members of the ACCA's Center for Active Living. Though free for members of CAL, pre-registration is required.

In our second installment, we'll explore every day records and sources that are often overlooked, discuss how to identify locations to find ancestors, and learn how to understand the place and time they lived. Some sources to be covered include non-population census schedules, special or local censuses, church records, cemetery records, school records, and substitutes for vital records.

For more information about the classes, please call us at the library, (706) 613-3650, extension 356; to register, please call the Athens Council on Aging at (706) 549-4850 or consult their online program catalog, Senior Center Scene.
