Free Genealogical Workshop given by Kay Kripchak. Kay is an experienced teacher who will be a new addition to our Auburn Montgomery Continuing Education Workshop, which begins in late September. She will focus on locating and managing your family information. Please contact all your friends who have expressed an interest in beginning their family research. Each attendee may bring their laptop or iPad, and several pictures to scan.
The admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be offered after the program, as always. Please come to enjoy the program and the fellowship with other family and local history enthusiasts--and bring a friend or two along with you!
