Beginning Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Tyler Public Library’s Taylor Auditorium, genealogists can get a few pointers from experienced researchers with a series of workshops sponsored by the East Texas Genealogical Society (ETGS) and the Tyler Public Library.
Roots 101: Beginning Genealogy (research for rookies) will introduce the basics of family research at 1:30-4:30 p.m. on four Saturdays; Jan. 21 and 28 and Feb. 4 and 11.
ETGS members will introduce participants to pedigree charts, group sheets, census records, Internet search engines and basic Internet searches. The group will tour the Local and Family History section of the Tyler Public Library, get an introduction to the Smith County Historical Society archives and explore other sources for genealogical information.
The cost for the workshop series is $5 at the door for materials and supplies. Roots101 is open to anyone interested in starting family research.
