Interested in Genealogical Research?

Posted on 15 June 2010 Tuesday

Many ancestors – immigrants and pioneers, slaves, women, native peoples, and others – do not have compiled biographies. They are invisible in the historical record, except through census or other data collection entities. Where there are gaps, the stories can be told through early travelogues, letters, diaries, maps, texts and printed ephemera, photographs and other visual media.
Journey into the lives of ancestors through the published records and online resources at  the Library of Congress. .Join Library staff specialists to explore resources and learn strategies to assist the researcher in recreating the stories that define and shape a family tree.

The Local History & Genealogy Division will conduct a free, one-hour orientation via webinar, on Thursday, June 17,          2:00 -3:00 pm. Eastern Daylight Time. To register for the orientation, use the Participant Registration Form at Confirmation, log on instructions, and the handout will be sent via email.
