Genealogy Foundations Series-Register Today!

Stranded? At the end of the road? The Genealogy Foundations series is a multi-class series that lays the foundation for effective family research. Learn search strategies to locate your ancestor's records regardless of how their name was spelled, transcribed, garbled, or misread. Improve your research skills and methodology while exploring a few key resources: census, newspapers, vital records and their substitutes, published genealogies and histories. Build a bridge to the past based on a firm footing.

All sessions are held in the 3rd floor computer lab at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Main Branch, 800 Vine Street.
