Getting Started in Genealogy: Finding Your New England Roots
Saturday, June 6, 1 pm, Community Room
A one-time "Getting Started" program, for the benefit of those wishing to learn more about their New England roots, will be facilitated by Ashley Adams of the Tewksbury Public Library. Discussion will include the importance of starting in the present and working back, documenting resources, where to find facts and proof to take you back another generation, and what forms and resources are available to support your research. This program is free to the public through a grant from the Tenney Family Association, but attendance is limited to 25 participants. Call 978-948-2850 to register or for more information.
