The Medfield Public Library will hold a genealogy workshop tonight, July 24, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to teach people how to get started using family research tools such as Ancestry and American Ancestors.
The workshop geared toward teens and adults, is free, and will be held in the computer area on the library’s lower level.
Ancestry.com claims to be the world’s largest on-line family history resource with seven billion genealogical records from across the globe and millions of family trees.
AmericanAncesters.org, the site for New England Historic Geneological Society founded in 1845, claims a database of “more than 200 million records for New England, New York and beyond.”
Librarian Stefanie Aucoin will help people navigate these sites and other resources to fill in the blanks on their family tree.
