The Portage Lake District Library will host two training sessions that will show participants how to use Ancestry Library Edition to search family records on Thursday, October 5, at 1:00 p.m. and again at 6:00 p.m.
Ancestry Library Edition contains billions of records in census data, birth, marriage and death certificates, passenger lists and immigration records, military records, land records and wills, schools and church histories, city directories, newspapers, photos, and much more.
At this training, participants will learn how to use basic search techniques to discover their own family’s stories as they navigate the many collections that are offered in Ancestry. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops so they can follow along with the tutorial, but bringing a laptop is not a requirement for attendance.
Library events are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570.
