This six week series served as an introduction to basic genealogy research. Attendees learned best practices, how to search sources, and strategies in doing genealogy research. Topics covered included the U.S. Census, vital records, immigration research, military research, and a variety of other resources.

This program was part of the American Creed Community Conversations and was designed to engage Americans in reflection and dialogue about their own part in the American story, and in acting to shape that story for the better.
