Have you ever wondered where your ancestors came from? Are you curious about their military service or medical history? Begin your family-history research at an introductory class at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Local History and Genealogy Department at George Memorial Library, 1001 Golfview in Richmond.
Library staff will present “Build Your Family Tree Online” on Tuesday, April 24, beginning at 10:00 am, in the Computer Lab.
Participants will learn how to create a family-tree website using the free resources on TribalPages.com, which enables users to add names, upload photographs, create an interactive chart, capture family stories, and invite other family members to contribute information. Those attending the class will need an email account to set up an account on this resource.
The program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required. To register online at the library’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), click on “Calendar,” select “George Memorial,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-341-2608, or by visiting the library’s Local History and Genealogy Department.
