WTPL Hosts Genealogy Open House

In celebration of National Family History Month, Washington Township Public Library’s Family Roots & Shoots Club plans to sponsor two free genealogy open houses for the public
Heard the family stories, seen the old family photos, but want to really know about the family?
Learn more at one of the free Genealogy Open Houses at the Washington Township Public Library in Long Valley on Sat., Oct. 22, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. and Tues., Oct. 25, from 6 p.m.– 8:30 p.m. The WTPL’s Roots & Shoots Genealogy Club will have seasoned amateur genealogists available to help research families. Learn how to read a census record, see what can be found in an obituary, find good clues on a birth certificate, and discover the many, many sources available in searching for roots.
To prepare, pick a particular person in the family and bring as much information about that person. A Family Roots & Shoots researcher will advise on the next step on the journey to finding out more about that person and filling in that empty family tree branch.
Refreshments will be served at the Open House. No registration is required. For more information, call Susan Clark at 908-876-3596 x14.
