Anyone interested in using Ancestry.com to begin their family history search is encouraged to take part in the labs offered by the Cazenovia Public Library.
Library staff member Elisha Davies will lead two information sessions designed to help participants begin their family search. Two 90-minute units will be offered: one at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 27 and the other at 10 a.m. Friday, June 29. Laptops are required and will be provided if needed, therefore space is limited for each session.
To reserve a preferred time and day, call the library at 655-9322 or stop by the circulation desk.
Interest in genealogy has risen within the past years due to the advent of online search sites such as Ancestry.com. This lab will help users become familiar with navigating the library’s edition of Ancestry.com, its tools and provide time for participants to start their online family tree. Both Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest are made available to the public by the Friends of the Cazenovia Public Library.
Researchers can now visit the library and access these sites through the library’s wireless (through links from the library’s website) or via the genealogy computer located in the Reference Room. These labs are free to the public, but pre-registration is required. For more information, call 655-9322.
