Summer Family Reunions A Good Time To Start Genealogy Research


THE DEUTSCHE TOWN FESTIVAL AND WE WILL TAKE YOU TO THE PLANT CONSERVATORY. BUT FIRST, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT FINDING YOUR ROOTS. SUMMER IS A GREAT TIME TO TRACE YOUR ANCESTRY. YOU CAN LEARN YOUR PERSONAL HISTORY THROUGHOUT THE AGES. OUR FIRST GUEST TODAY RECENTLY HELPED ME FIND MY ROOTS. WE ARE SO GLAD THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO MAKE IT IN. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE FAMILY REUNIONS AND FAMILY FUNCTIONS WHERE THEY CAN LEARN ABOUT THEIR PAST. THAT’S RIGHT. FAMILY REUNIONS AND GET- TOGETHERS ARE A GREAT WAY TO START YOUR GENEALOGY SEARCH. THERE ARE OTHER EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AS WELL SO THERE ARE MEETINGS AND WEBINARS AND WORKSHOPS. SOME OF THOSE ARE FREE AND SOME OF THEM HAVE A COST WITH THEM. PRESENTERS CAN OFFER VARIOUS TOPICS ON RESEARCH, RECORDS AND WHERE TO FIND INFORMATION. AND THAT ALSO, HOW TO ORGANIZE IT. THAT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, IT IS VERY EXCITING.

THEY ALSO OFFER EVENING SESSIONS THAT ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. AND THE NORTH HAIRLESS — NORTH HILLS GENEALOGIES — JANELLE TEST GENEALOGISTS ARE HOSTING IT. SO I HAVE THESE WONDERFUL DOCUMENTS NOTE FROM WHAT YOU HELPED ME FINE ON MY MILITANTS IN SYRIA. NOW THAT I HAVE THESE DOCUMENTS, HOW DO WE PROTECT THEM AND KEEP THEM IN ORDER? TALKING ABOUT EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, THE HEINZ HISTORY CENTER DOES HAVE PROGRAMS TO TEACH YOU HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE DOCUMENTS. SO, I KNOW I HAVE A FAMILY BIBLE AND OLD PHOTOS. SO THERE ARE SPECIAL BOXES AND ACID-FREE FOLDERS THAT YOU WILL WANT TO USE. THEY OFFER THOSE KINDS OF PROGRAMS. THEY ARE PRESERVATION CLASSES. AND THEN THE WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY TOUCHES ON THAT. AND THEY WILL HELP YOU FIGURE OUT WHERE TO FIND INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RELATIVES. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE THAT ARE WILLING TO HELP YOU AT MANY LOCATIONS. FANTASTIC. JUST START BY ASKING SOME FAMILY MEMBERS AS WELL. THANK YOU SO MUCH. AS YOU JUST HEARD, THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN ABOUT RESOURCES FOR YOUR FAMILY HISTORY AND INCLUDING EVERY
