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.

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.
