Find out who you are at genealogy workshop

There has been a lot of interest in family history in the past few years thanks to recent programs such as “Who Do You Think You Are” and others. Do you know who you are?

The Chisago County Historical Society will host a genealogy workshop at the North Branch Public Library on the first Tuesdays of February, March and April at 6:30 p.m. The courses are open to the public, and there is no cost.

Beginning family researchers are welcome. Bring along information about parents, grandparents and other genealogical data. Courses will run about one and a half hours and include a question and answer time. Here’s the plan:

• Tuesday, Feb. 5: Scandinavian research, including online sources

• Tuesday, March 5: European research, including online sources

• Tuesday, April 2: Online researching using ancestry.com, familysearch.org, rootsweb and other Internet sources

The courses will be taught by CCHS board members with many years of research experience. Please call 651-269-3580 to register for one or all of the courses.
