Are you ready to discover your family’s history? Escondido Public Library will host a free Genealogy Workshop on Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 2:30 – 4:00 PM. The workshop will be held in the Pioneer Room, the city’s archive for local history and genealogy resources, which is located in the Mathes Community Center at 247 South Kalmia Street. This workshop is designed for adults who want to discover their family history and learn about research resources and techniques. Intermediate genealogy enthusiasts are also welcome to attend as well.

The workshop, taught by Ginger Kullman, a lifelong Escondido resident and genealogy expert, features an introduction to genealogy resources and free handouts. Workshop attendees will also receive an introduction to Ancenstry.com, the world’s largest online family history resource. The Escondido Public Library subscribes to Ancestry.com and makes this popular genealogy database available for free public use in the library.

Reservations are required as space may be limited. Contact Ginger Kullman at 760-745-6633 to RSVP. This program is sponsored by the Pioneer Room Friends, Escondido Library’s support group interested in preserving and advancing Escondido’s rich local history and resources.
