Why is genealogy one of the most popular hobbies
today? Everyone has a different reason to get involved in the
family history. Some people are curious about their ancestors-who
they were, what were they like and what experiences they
through. Love of history prompts others. Another part of
our passion for genealogy is unwrapping all the puzzling
to solve the mystery of who we are. If the only barrier to
your working on your family history is that you don't know
how to begin, join us to learn how to unravel your past.
Genealogy Workshop Thursdays is returning to the Carolina
Room at Patrick Beaver Library. Twice each month through
May 15, 2014, Peggy Mainess, genealogy
assistant, will lead sessions on genealogy research. Each
