The only way to begin tracing your genealogy is to begin with yourself and work outward, one generation at a time. You must work from the known into the unknown. This lecture will provide the basic building blocks for those who may have recently begun or are anxious to begin tracing their family's history. This program is part of the Branch Library Series , jointly sponsored by the NYG&B and NYPL.
FREE and no registration is required.
