Have you ever wondered where your ancestors came from? Are you curious about their military service or medical history? Learn the basics of beginning your family-history research at a special program, “Genealogy 101,” on Thursday, July 25, beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Computer Lab at University Branch Library, 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
Daniel Sample, manager of the Genealogy and Local History Department at Fort Bend County Libraries, will provide a basic introduction to many of the resources that are available to the beginning genealogical researcher. Items that will be introduced include print resources, materials that are available on microfilm, and online tools such as the Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest USA databases.
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 “University Branch,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-633-5100, or by visiting the library.
