Interested in starting your genealogical research but do not know how to start? Join us as we provide an overview of Ancestry Library Edition, a free service available at St. Mary's County Library.

Genealogy is a massive interest among many people, both near and far, and Ancestry is one of, if not the most, well known and most utilized genealogical database. The St. Mary’s County Library offers this service free to anyone in the Library – a wonderful amenity that allows individuals to perform their research. We will offer answers and clarification, along with a tutorial, of how to use Ancestry to research one’s own genealogy, in addition to how to start researching one's family history. From understanding the sources provided, to identifying where to acquire more information, to simply learning how to get started using Ancestry, we will be showcasing this database to those who are interested in better understanding Ancestry.

This session is open to anyone, regardless of experience. We look forward to seeing you!
