Free genealogy workshop to be held in July


If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about your family tree, The New Jersey Historical Society is the perfect place to start digging.

On Saturday, July 12, 2003, The New Jersey Historical Society is offering “Discovering your Family Tree Amidst the Overgrown Forest,” a beginning genealogy workshop from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 52 Park Place, Newark, NJ. The workshop is FREE and OPEN to the public.

Chad Leinaweaver, Director of the Library, will teach participants various methods of research, how to organize facts, and where to begin. Hands-on group activities, pedigree charts and a question-and-answer session also will be included.

The library, which is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., houses a wide collection of resources for genealogical research, including city directories, newspapers, published family histories, bible records, family vertical files, censuses, tax lists, published cemetery and church records, and collections of genealogists.
