Annual Genealogy Conference: Finding the Story
October 15 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$20.00
This year has seen the return of the genealogy program “Who Do You Think You Are” (WDYTYA) which has touted the art of genealogy and the wonderful stories it can reveal. The show is sponsored by Ancestry.com but a lot of the seekers are sent to repositories to find out more information. In truth, there is only so much you can find online, even though more information is being added every day. To find answers you have to go to the repositories to find local records, court records, and other evidence. On October 15th, join us at the Historical Society of Harford County to review the WDYTYA methods and find the resources available to you. Discussions will include societies such as the Daughters’ of the American Revolution (DAR), National Archives, State Archives, and other resources.
Time for research of our archives will be provided in the afternoon. The program will also include a genealogy book sale, offering an opportunity to find specialized resources for your future research.
Register Now: $20, pre-registration is required.
The classes start at 10:00 AM and concludes at 12:00 with a lunch (On Your Own) break. At 1:00 PM we will have research time until 3:00 PM for those registered for the class.
