Researching Your Genealogy on the Internet is presented by Bob Larson, Education Co-Chair and instructor for Larimer County Genealogical Society. This is a FREE three hour class comprised of one and ½ hours using three Internet databases including HeritageQuest Library Edition, MyHeritage Library Edition, and FamilySearch. Bob will provide information on accessing these and other databases, how to use the databases in researching your ancestors, how to save the genealogy records for future use, how to build a family tree, and how to use the three popular message boards.
NOTE: It’s recommended you obtain a library card from Poudre River Library District in Fort Collins for this class, unless you have a subscription to Ancestry.com and MyHeritage.com, then bring your user name and password to this class to use on the library’s computers or bring your laptop if you prefer. Just remember to log-off afterwards. You can obtain a free library card at any of the Poudre River three libraries by bringing your driver’s license, regardless of where you live in Colorado or Wyoming. This allows you to log-in to the Wellington Library computers and use the required databases at the Poudre River Libraries.
After the presentation, the society genealogists will be available for 1 ½ hours to assist the participants in researching their ancestors. Please bring your ancestry notes and charts on your ancestors that you need help by our genealogists. If you’re new to genealogy, please bring your ancestry notes on birth, marriage, and death of your parents and grandparents if applicable.
Limited to 15 seats!
A folder with more information on the three databases, other popular genealogy databases, and Larimer County Genealogical Society is included.
