Google Your Peeps

What do you want to know about your ancestors? Everything. The Internet is a great tool for genealogy, but are you using it to its full potential? Author Neil Gaiman said, "Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one." The Southern History Department specializes in genealogy, and the staff is trained to harness the power of the Internet specifically for finding that elusive ancestor. Make plans to attend Google Your Peeps, our last Beyond the Basics of Genealogy workshop for 2017 this Saturday, October 28th.

In this workshop, you learn how to create a research template and look for details that will help you discover more about your ancestors using search engines, genealogy databases, and a few other, perhaps surprising websites.

Google Your Peeps will begin at 10 am and take place in the Arrington Auditorium, 4th floor, Linn-Henley Research Library. To secure your spot, please call the Southern History Department at 205-226-3665 or register online.
