Beginning Genealogy, a workshop sponsored by the Muscatine County Genealogical Society

MUSCATINE, Iowa–Genealogy is an exciting and intriguing hobby for people of all ages. Many of us have seen TV programs such as “Finding Your Roots” on PBS, “Who Do You Think You Are” on TLC, or “Roots Less Traveled” on NBC. Each of these shows introduce their guest to the guest’s ancestry. None of these programs show how the ancestors were found.

The Muscatine County Genealogical Society is sponsoring a six week class to show class participants how to find their family history. Topics include basic starting points, using census reports, types of records available, where records may be located, internet searches, and document storage. The class is one hour per week for six weeks starting Saturday, Oct. 2 at 10:30 a. m. Mike Wedell and Anne Thomas, experienced genealogists and members of the Genealogical Society, will lead the class. The class will meet at the Musser Public Library, 408 East Second Street, Muscatine. There is no charge for the class, but registration is required.
