Getting Started in Genealogy

Getting Started in Genealogy

Carol Ansel, Director at the Godfrey Memorial Library in Middletown, will present the ABC’s of beginning genealogy, with an emphasis on the 8 (or so) basic types of genealogical records—where you can find them and how best to use them. She will include plenty of personal anecdotes to help you learn from both her mistakes and her successes. Before she was bitten by the genealogy bug, Carol was a school librarian for many years, so she is no stranger to presentations, and she finds that adults are generally better-behaved than seventh grade boys. If you don’t know about the Godfrey Library, you will by the end of the presentation. Who knew we had such an amazing genealogical resource right here in Middletown, CT?
