INTRO TO RESEARCHING YOUR FAMILY HISTORY AND WORKSHOP TO FOLLOW

 Join us on Thursday, August 3rd at the Marlboro Library for two of our popular genealogy programs!  Patrons are welcome to stay for either just one or both programs, but please be aware if you’d like to reserve one of the Library laptops for the 7:00 pm workshop, registration is required.

 Were you unable to attend past sessions of our Genealogy classes?  On August 3, at 6:00 pm, the Marlboro Library is offering another chance for beginners to learn how to map out a family tree with an encore presentation!  The cost of an Ancestry.com annual subscription can cost hundreds of dollars. AncestryLibrary.com, which is available in the Library, has many of the same features of the paid subscription.  RSVP for this class (at marlborolibrary.org) to learn the basics of using this product in the Library and discover what other genealogical resources we have available.  Learn also some tips and tricks on how to search through websites and databases found online. Walk-ins welcome!

Then, at 7:00 pm learn to apply these newfound research skills to make discoveries.  Join us for our hands-on workshop consisting of a specially set up research space with laptops and other local history materials. Registered patrons can explore databases and web sites like Ancestrylibrary.com, Family Search and more.  Library staff will be on hand to help with any questions or problems, as well as one of our local history researchers to assist with anyone interested in documents, photos, maps, books and more found in our local history collection. 

Bring your library card and your family research as far back as you know (even if it’s just your grandparents) and we will help you expand your search!  If you would like to reserve one of our six available laptops, be sure to register at marlborolibrary.org.  If you have your own laptop, feel free to join us without registering.
