Diggin’ Your Roots: Genealogy Workshop

What is genealogy? How do you start to build your own family tree? Kate Wells and Michelle Chiles will cover the basics to get you started in this informative workshop. You’ll learn basic research methods and work with free websites (or paper if you prefer!) to create your own family tree. You’ll learn to search several free genealogical databases, learn about resources available to you at Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence Public Library, and in your own community and how to use what you find to document your family history. Basic comfort using a computer for online research is required.

This program is free and open to the public.
