Intro to Genealogy         NEW 

Starts  October 20th

As a result of our survey, a new program - Introduction to Genealogy - will be offered to help you get started on your genealogy journey or provide motivation to continue where you left off. Open to members and non-members, we encourage you to introduce a friend to genealogy and see what RGS is all about. Eric Vaughn and Chris Booth will host these interactive sessions three times a year at the Irondequoit Public Library and via Zoom.

Our first session will be from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm on Thursday, October 20th. Participants will start building their family tree, learn how to research and document, and determine next steps. Sessions 2 and 3 - dates to be determined - will provide numerous ways to fill in gaps and start building the stories around your ancestors' lives.

Bring your laptop and questions so you can create your family tree, meet new ancestors, and get ideas for where to research next. Handouts will be provided. It will be a fun evening of learning how to solve your family puzzles.
