December 13th from 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET


Competency: Public Services Competencies

Sub-Category: Adult and Older Adult Services

Are you curious about
your personal or family ancestry?  Have
you done a DNA test and want to know more about your roots? Do you work in a
field where you get genealogical questions and want to be able to better assist
your customers? Do you just enjoy historical research?


Even before the
popularity of DNA testing, family history is something many people want to
learn more about.  However, many
individuals find it is difficult to know exactly where to begin to trace their
roots. While there is a plethora of information available at one's fingertips,
getting started and then sifting through the information overload to find those
nuggets of information is often frustrating. Fortunately, there are many
available resources that can help you to avoid that frustration and begin
digging up your ancestral roots.  


At the conclusion of
the webinar, participants will be able to:



how to get organized for genealogical research


familiarity with basic genealogical research tools


familiarity with basic sources of genealogical information


familiarity with sources of genealogical information for historically
disenfranchised populations


how DNA results and genealogical research intersect
