On Saturday, March 16, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Margaret Troke Branch Library will host an afternoon long program called “Who Do You Think You Are? A Free Genealogy Workshop for Beginners." Volunteers from the San Joaquin Genealogical Society will present useful information and insights to help you with your genealogy research!
In the afternoon session, genealogy experts will help individuals one-on-one trace their own ancestors through Internet resources. Participants are asked to bring whatever data they have such as the birth, marriage, death dates of ancestors, where they lived, etc.
Space is limited! Those interested in attending this workshop must register for free at the Troke Branch Library Information Desk or call (209) 937-8221. Participants may bring their own laptops and use the Library’s free WiFi!
