Historical Society of Montgomery County to Host Genealogy Workshop

The four-week genealogy workshop is designed for beginners, and will start May 21.

The Historical Society of Montgomery County, located at 1654 Dekalb St. in Norristown, will hold a four-week Genealogy Workshop, from May 21 – June 11.

The Tuesday evening workshops will occur from, 7 – 8:30 p.m., and will be lead by genealogist Rose Brown.

The workshops are designed for beginning genealogists, who wish to find their roots. According to the Genealogy Society of Pennsylvania website, becoming a new genealogist is an exciting time, from discovering an ancestor’s naturalization papers or locating a long-ago relative in a census. The site goes on to say that genealogy has a special methodology, and the society suggests reaching out to a variety of more experienced genealogists for beginners.

The materials for the workshops cost $7.50 for members and $10 for nonmembers.

According to Norristown.org, seating is limited for this event, to reserve a space, or for more information, call 610-272-0297 or e-mail contact_us@hsmcpa.org.
