Want to learn more about your ancestors, but not sure how to begin? Come gather with others who have the same interest in tracing their family history. Join in for the workshops and attend programs that will help guide you to the resources that will help you in tracing your ancestral roots. As members discuss the methods they've used to discover new clues to further their research, your interaction with these beginning researchers as well as seasoned genealogists may provide that very clue that will cause a breakthrough for you in finding that illusive great grandfather or other ancestor you've been searching for. Investigating genealogy lets you know where you came from and brings forbears to life. Documenting your discoveries will enable you to leave a legacy that generations after you will cherish.
