If you are just starting family research, this class is for you! This two-part workshop introduces the first-time family researcher to the fascinating field of genealogy, its unique nomenclature, and suggested research techniques. It may also be of value to researchers with limited experience who wish to refresh their skills. Participants will receive hand-outs to help guide you in your research. This session will review basic concepts and vocabulary, standard formats and methods for collecting data,  record keeping and citing sources, and how to start your family tree.  There will be homework!
