Baldwinsville Public Library librarians Meg VanPatten and Bonnie Kisselstein will introduce you to what is involved in starting the process and how the library can help. Local resources, how-to guides, online resources and free in-depth classes by genealogy expert Louise Creighton will be discussed.
