10am - 12pm | Oregon Historical Society
Have you just started digging into your family tree, or are you a genealogy veteran who wants to learn more tips and tricks? Whether you have a lot, or a little, or even no experience with genealogy, family historians from the OHS Research Library will make digging up the past loads of fun! Join us for an upcoming family history workshop at the Oregon Historical Society to help you discover your roots.
"Bury the Dead, Not the Living: Organizing Your Genealogy"
Do you have binders, boxes, or filing cabinets full of papers and research notes handed down from great-grandma? Or perhaps you’ve spent hours looking through microfilm only to realize that you have already looked there before! Organization is the key to productive and successful family history research. Learn how to stay on top of (instead of underneath) those piles of pedigrees, censuses, pension files, and probates by organizing and preserving your records electronically. Lay to rest that ancestor without digging through catacombs of records to find him!
