Long summer days are perfect for starting a new hobby. If you’ve been thinking about filling in the gaps in your family tree, the Rock Island Public Library can help you get started this summer with a series of hands-on genealogy workshops.
Whether you’re ready to start your family tree journey now, or just wondering what’s possible, these free workshops may help. Each session lasts for most of an hour, with the goal of helping participants get into the resource, and explore the basics of using it. Each of the four workshops focus on a different library or free public resource that can help you start your search. The workshops are as follows:
Each workshop is free and open to any adult, but capacity is limited. Registration is required and limited to 10 registrants. To sign up, use the library event calendar or call 309-732-7341. For additional questions, call the Library Historical Room at 309-732-7352.
