Getting Started with Genealogy

Pam Fujii and Dave McCready of the Santa Clara County Historical and Genealogical Society will teach this class.

Learn the basics of starting your genealogy research.  This class will help you discover what documents you have, what documents you need and what to do with the information you have found.  You will learn what is available from vital records, as well as other kinds of records.  We will explain family group sheets and pedigree charts and show you how to get started in filling them out. We will also give you an introduction to sourcing your information.

This class is free and open to all, but registration is required. Registration opens on August 19. To learn more and to register, visit
