New Computer Class: Using FamilySearch.org

FamilySearch

The Birmingham Public Library is known for its robust offering of computer skills classes, and patrons desire new topics to help them continue on the path of lifelong learning. This September, one of our new classes is Using FamilySearch.org, which is a free genealogy website that connects you to resources to research your family history. In this class, you will learn how to locate genealogy resources, build your own family tree, and so much more. One of our favorite features is the memories page in which you can tell the story of your family using stories, photos, and audio. Here is a snapshot of Erik Erikson’s memory page, and you can create one similar to this for your family.

Using FamilySearch.org will take place on Tuesday, September 15, from 9:15-10:15 a.m., in the Regional Learning Computer Center (RLCC) on the 4th floor of the Linn Henley building at Central Library. Our September classes cover a wide variety of topics including patent basics, blogging, researching your house history, Internet movie websites, and so much more, and you can check the schedule to find a class and time that works for you. There is something for everyone. Because we offer these classes in the RLCC, space is limited, so please call 205-226-3680 to register. See you soon!
