Where do we come from? 

Researching our family history is becoming more popular with subscription services such as and 23andMe ancestry kits. 

But what if we don’t want to spend a fortune answering this question? 

How can we find our ancestors without costly subscriptions? 

How can I confirm that my ancestors were from (insert country) or that the stories my great aunt tells are true?

Knowing about free genealogy resources, both digital and physical, is one way to get started researching your genealogy. We all have a history and lack of funds should not be a barrier. 

Familiarize yourself with free websites and databases as well as local resources so that you can research your own history, help a patron research, or conduct a class on genealogy. 

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Generate a list of geographic-specific resources
  • Locate hidden resources buried in databases
  • Interpret Census records
  • Evaluate digital resources
  • Record your research
