The Ohio History Connection’s Archives/Library, the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society, and the Columbus Metropolitan Library jointly offer a series of programs designed to introduce family history researchers to the many records and resources available to them.
The workshops will offer an in-depth introduction to the basic methods, tools and sources for getting started in your family history research. These programs are recommended to those who have not previously had genealogical instruction or who are looking to refresh or jump-start their genealogical research skills.
Again this year, we will be offering webinar classes for attendees to join and participate in from their personal computers at home.
