Mrs. Tribbey will discuss all the strategies and beginning steps in starting your family history journey. After a short refreshment break, researcher Elfie Eittel Wilde will guide you through census records and teach participants how to use these important documents.

Each participant will receive a handbook with lecture outlines, genealogy forms, resource lists (including online repositories) and the addresses to local courthouses and other sources of public information.
