October is National Family History Month and in celebration of this event, the Williams County Public Library and the Williams County Genealogical Society will be offering a series of classes for those who are beginners in the realm of family research (Genealogy 101). The Saturday classes will be held in the Harmon Room and the Computer Lab of the Local History and Genealogy Center, 107 East High Street, Bryan, OH, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 7, 14, and 21. Each session will deal with different areas of genealogy. Topics covered will include utilizing best genealogical practices, filling out forms correctly, interviewing relatives, using the census, employing genealogical online resources, pursuing land and military records, evaluating probate records, and more. Pam Lash, WCPL Library assistant, WCGS publications chair and area genealogist, will be instructing these classes. The cost per session is $5, which will cover the cost of the participant’s lunch. Seating is limited to the first 12 with a waiting list, so call WCPL at 419.636.6734 ext. 275 or email Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot in these classes geared for those who wish to start a family history project. Your ancestors will be thrilled.
