Begins Wednesday: New technology helps research family tree — learn for free at Lake Highlands library

There is a point in many of our lives during which we long to learn more about our family history, that tree from which we sprouted and the depths of its roots.

More modern technology, applications and products are developed each day to help enhance such research, should we choose to dive down that rabbit hole.

The Audelia Road Branch Library for the next three Wednesdays, beginning tomorrow, Wednesday July 12, offers a totally free, come-as-you-are “genealogy for beginners” series.

The classes begin at 6:30 p.m., are free and open to seniors, adults and teens.

Worth noting, while amateur genealogy studies used to be conducted primarily by retired residents, some genealogy experts say “the majority today seems to be middle-aged, and pre-retirement folks, with a growing number of very tech-savvy younger people 25-40” becoming increasingly interested.

I do apologize for the short notice regarding the first workshop, but there are three altogether and you need not attend all three, necessarily, though each section builds a bit on the previous and focuses on different areas of research.

Wednesday, July 12, 6:30 PM: Where to Begin 
Wednesday, July 19, 6:30 PM: Sources of Genealogical Information 
Wednesday, July 26, 6:30 PM: Search Techniques

There is no equipment required and registration is not necessary.
