Find Your Roots - Discover Your Family Tree

October is Family History Month so it's the perfect time to explore your family history. There's no better way to get started than with help from this Pima County Genealogy Society's introduction to genealogy workshop.

In this workshop we will examine the reasons for starting the family history search, and the resources available at home, the internet, and across the country. We will go on to discuss charts for presenting the information you uncover, and local libraries that have volunteers to aid your searching.

The presentation will also include a realistic case study and will demonstrate the step-by-step process of tracking down information about a particular ancestor.

Read to a Dog

Children are invited to read to a Certified Therapy Dog. One of the favorite things for the dog to do is listen to children read lots of stories. Reading to a dog or other pet can help new and reluctant readers gain confidence, increase important reading skills, and develop a love of reading.

Find out more about Read to a Dog.
