Have you been meaning to look up information on your ancestors but don’t know where to start? Register online or by phone for my class, “Genealogy 101,” Aug. 15, 7 p.m., at the Chardon Branch in the Bostwick Room. Every discipline, including genealogy, has proven tools and methods. We will cover ancestor charts, documenting, which records to use, and where to find them. Look through the GCPL catalog for genealogy how-to books, magazines, and guides for specific ethnic research.  You can even check out one of my favorite genealogy tools – Family Tree Magazine.

Cheryl McClellan is the genealogist at GCPL. She is currently reading They Became Americans: Finding Naturalization Records and Ethnic Origins by Loretto Dennis Szucs.
