What you'll learn in this history lesson:

Find your circa 1900 New York City ancestors in online databases, and learn where to look for them in brick-and-mortar NYC archives: births, deaths, marriages, ship manifests, military, tax and voting records. Come with a name and any documents you already have. Questions will be answered, and your ancestor may be used as the class example. Hands-on in a computer laboratory, or bring your own laptop, internet-ready or internet-connected device. 

This course will provide the primary tools and introduction to how to begin to search your own family's genealogy. Not the typical approach of studiously following standards for proofs of assertions, this course will encourage you to jump into personal interests first-to have the thrill of finding documents quickly-to be followed by sorting out the finer points later.

Prerequisite: Computer and Internet skills required.

Price includes $20 Registration Fee
