The series of three one-hour classes will begin on May 9, 2012. The tuition is $20 per class or $35 for the two presented each evening. With your laptop and a library card, we will show you a wealth of information available online to family researchers. There will also be time to collaborate on your own family line. The topics covered in the Spring/Summer Sessions will be:
