Genealogy Research Workshops
Thursdays February 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd at 6:30pm
Dave Robison of Old Bones Genealogy will be hosting a four-part workshop entitled "Genealogy Research - It's More Than Just a Website" here at the Granby Free Public Library each Thursday night in February at 6:30pm.
From beginners to experienced family researchers, we all fall into ruts and we all run into “brick walls” in our research. Frustrating, isn’t it? “It’s More Than Just a Website” will pull you out of those ruts, get you to review the research you’ve already completed, and deep dive to see what may have been missed, overlooked or misinterpreted. Keeping in mind that it’s not all on the internet, you’ll discover many resources that may surprise you. Participants will be given access to dozens of website lists, documents, and other tools that you’ll be able to download and save to your own computer. The goal is to revive the research and help you look from a different perspective. It’s a very rewarding process!
