On Saturday, November 16, at 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Margaret Troke Branch Library will host a free genealogy workshop for beginners! San Joaquin Genealogical Society member Sylvia Perez will discuss researching your Mexican genealogy. She will include her own experiences researching local records in locations where her ancestors lived and finding distant relatives still living in the area.
After the presentation, volunteers from the San Joaquin Genealogical Society will help individuals one-on-one trace their own ancestors through Internet resources. Participants are asked to bring whatever data they already have such as the birth, marriage, death dates of ancestors, where they lived, etc.
Space is limited! Those interested in attending this workshop must sign-up at the Troke Branch Library Information Desk or call (209) 937-8221. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops and use the Library's free WiFi!
