Researching Your Family History

October is Family History Month. Experienced genealogists from Pima County Genealogy Society will be leading sessions to help you start your own family tree.

This presentation is an introduction to genealogy. They will examine the reasons for starting, the resources available at home, the internet, and across the country. They will discuss charts for presenting the information you uncover, and local libraries that have volunteers to aid your searches. Finally, a small bibliography of useful introductory texts will be presented.
