The classes will be held every Wednesday in June at 10 AM.  Registration is required.

Gen Squad Webinar - Researching the Cluster

Neighbors courtesy of Clker.comFinding your ancestor's family in a census can be easy - or incredibly hard. Genealogists, am I right? One strategy for finding the ancestor playing hide-and-seek is to research their cluster: the neighbors and family living and often migrating with them. In our next Gen Squad lesson we'll be watching a webinar about how to do cluster research to bring that hard-to-find family out into the open. Join us on Monday, 4/25 at 2:00pm.
