IGS & Iowa PBS Genealogy Workshop Series  (Events)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Zoom only
Iowa Genealogical Society is partnering with Iowa PBS to offer a beginner to intermediate genealogy workshop coming in February. “Finding Your Roots Through Records” will consist of four (4) two-hour sessions focused on the public records individuals can research to find more information about their ancestors.
Each session will feature a combination of lecture and discussion, question and answer time, and a homework assignment relating to your family search. Handouts will be provided for each session. The Zoom webinars will be recorded and registrants can view the sessions later; however, because this workshop is interactive, we encourage all registrants to attend the live sessions in order to get the most out of the series.
These sessions will provide valuable information to guide researchers as they dive into genealogical pursuits, and each session will use Iowa examples.
Registration is $100 and includes access to all four sessions, the recordings and any supplemental materials provided by the instructors. Registered attendees will receive each workshop recording within 48 hours after the workshop.
Dates: Feb 29, Mar 14, Mar 28, and Apr 11.
