Discover how to search for your roots, your family history and what made you the person you are.

Presenter: Kathy Jones

About the talk: What is genealogy and why would you want to do it? Curiosity about your ancestors - who were they, what were they like, what experiences did they live through. History is part of the reason as family history and the history of the times your ancestors lived are intertwined. Solving mysteries is also a huge part of wanting to find your ancestry. More importantly, researching your family leaves a legacy for your children and grandchildren to know and recognize the individuals over the centuries whose lives helped make us who we are today.
