Have you ever wanted to know more about your family tree and your ancestors, but do not know where to start? If the answer is yes, you should attend our Introduction to Genealogy class. This class is designed for people who are novices or beginners in genealogical research. Here are some of the topics that will be covered: 
  • Planning a Research Trip
  • Vital Records 
  • Census Records 
  • Church Records 
  • Courthouse Records 
  • Ancestor/Pedigree Charts and Family Group Sheets 
  • Popular Genealogy Websites
This month, the Southern History department will be teaching two classes. Our first class is at Vestavia Hill’s Library in the Forest on Saturday, January 10 from 3-4 pm, and registration is recommended. The next class will be held on Sunday, January 18 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on the first floor of the Linn-Henley building in the Southern History department at the Central branch of The Birmingham Public Library. No registration is required for this class, so come and bring a friend! If your calendar is already booked up, don’t worry we hold this class several times a year, and the content is the same with each offering. If you have any questions, please contact us by phone at 205-226-3665 or contact us through Ask a Librarian under Genealogy and Local History.
