Carol Jeffery, GNPS member, is enthusiastic about family history research and will share the bits and pieces of her limited experience in this vast area. Interested members will form a family history research group. Initially, NYPL introductory materials will be used to guide our research. Members will support each other in using resources and finding answers to their family history questions.
NYPL research librarians are also available to respond to emailed questions. Because records and classes are still temporarily available on line, there has never been a better time to use these NYPL family history resources.
The group will meet every other week for 6 sessions. By the end of the first meeting, each member will select 1 or 2 questions to research. We will share our success and challenges. Finally, we will identify individual goals and discuss possible future directions.
