Space is extremely limited for this afternoon genealogy workshop hosted by Dr. Christa Bolen.
Have you always wondered if you were related to someone famous (or infamous)? Do you have a long-told family tale you’d like to confirm or deny? Do you wonder how far your roots go back in America and if you may be a Mayflower descendant? Are you seeking to find birth family but only have non-identifying information?
If any of these questions apply to YOU, join us at the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society for a Heritage Hunt adventure!
This 2 hour workshop will take you through the basics of creating a family tree, sifting through and understanding census, military, and other records, and determining the validity of trees posted by other users, as well as tips and tricks to discover information beyond what’s contained on sites like Ancestry.com and FamilySearch. Tickets are $25, $20 for museum members.
