The United States celebrates Family History Month in October every year. It is a wonderful time of the year; summer activities have waned and Fall leads to being able to spend more time inside. Many libraries and societies are participating in Family History Month by offering classes, webinars, events, and more to explore. It is a time to celebrate our roots.
I plan to celebrate and take advantage of some of the online Family History events and refocus my attention on family history. Two great Family History Month events are below. Do you have a favorite Family History Month event? Please share in the comment section.
1. Heritage Quest is offering two webinars: Introduction to Heritage Quest and Heritage Quest-Beyond the Basics. The following information is courtesy of Library of Michigan.
