Digging up your roots at the Library

Two workshops for exploring your family roots
are being offered at the Plainfield Public Library.

Those Plainfielders interested in learning more about their family history will want to mark their calendars for two upcoming family history workshops at the Plainfield
Public Library.

This Thursday, March 20, you can join others in a hands-on computer-assisted tour of free online genealogical resources under the leadership of the Library's Local History staff. The program will run from 2:30 - 4:00 PM in the Computer Center on the main floor. The event is free and open to all, but because of space limitations, you must register in adance. To register, call the Local History Department at (908) 757-1111 x136.

Following up on the above is another workshop, previously scheduled for February but pospoend on account of the weather. On Saturday, March 22, genealogist Teresa Vega will help you explore the possibilities of discovering more about your genealogy from DNA testing. (I have done it, and the results are fascinating.) You can learn more about Ms. Vega's presentation from my previous post (see here).

This workshop will be held in the Anne Louise Davis Meeting Room and is open to all, no registration required. It will run from 10:00 AM to Noon.

The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots.
