Discover Your Roots

What do you know about your family's past?  Have you ever wanted to learn more about your great great grandfather?  You can learn about all this and more by just delving into your family's genealogy.  This Saturday, the Bear Creek Genealogical Society will be at the Maud Marks Library to help you with just that.

Learn how to track down that elusive ancestor.  Find out what happened on that boat which brought him to the new world.  Or, find out how to find a historical military record to apply for one of the many college scholarships out there.

Everyone has a story.  Come to the library on Saturday at 2 PM to find yours.

Seating for this and many other programs are limited.  Click here to register.
