Where do we come from?
Researching our family history is becoming more popular with subscription
services such as Ancestry.com and 23andMe ancestry kits. But what if we don't
want to spend a fortune answering this question? How can we find our ancestors
without costly subscriptions? How can I confirm that my ancestors were from
(insert country) or that the stories my great aunt tells are true?
Knowing about free
genealogy resources, both digital and physical, is one way to get started
researching your genealogy. We all have a history and lack of funds should not
be a barrier.
Familiarize yourself with
free websites and databases as well as local resources so that you can research
your own history, help a patron research, or conduct a class on genealogy. At
the conclusion of webinar, participants will be able to:
a list of geographic specific resources
hidden resources buried in databases
