Whether you’re considering creating a family tree for the first time or tracking down a "brick-wall" ancestor, Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is here to help! On Tuesday, November 14, at 7:30 p.m., librarian Jo Stanbridge will give a slideshow and talk about how to use the library's genealogy resources, including the popular subscription service Ancestry Library Edition. This repeat of talks given last autumn and winter will take place at the Isabel Turner library branch.
Ancestry is arguably the world’s largest online genealogy resource and is an invaluable tool for anyone working on their family tree. Learn how to access Ancestry Library Edition free of charge from within any KFPL branch, and how to use other free resources and strategies to grow your family tree.
This event is open to all, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance by phone at 613-549-8888. For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca .
