Beginner's Genealogy Class at Rippey Public Library February 29, 2016, 1:00 Feb 29, 2016 from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM Rippey Public Library,
Finding Your Roots – A Beginner’s Guide Rippey Public Library February 29, 2016 at 1:00 Iowa Genealogical Society made an offer through the Iowa Library Services to do a beginning genealogy class for any public library in Iowa that would be interested. Rippey Public Library will be the site on February 29, 2016 at 1:00. Theresa Liewer will be the presenter from the Iowa Genealogical Society. “The class covers organizing your information – forms, charts, physical storage of papers and an overview of software programs. We’ll also discuss how to evaluate sources and learn about the pitfalls of relying on other’s research, both online and in books. We’ll explore genealogy websites and work through some basic building blocks of genealogy, including your personal family items and census records.” “Attendees are encouraged to bring birth and death dates and locations for their grandparents or great-grandparents so we can try to locate more information about them. When we’re done, everyone should have a good idea on how to start, where to go for more information and how much fun family research can be.” “The IGC had several motivations - one was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of IGS and be of service all across the state. Another was to try and drive membership for the local societies.” Everyone is welcome to attend!
