So many databases, so little time.  How does Ancestry.com compare to Family Search?  What about other subscription and free databases?  Experienced HSP staffer and researcher, Dana Dorman, guides you through the various databases which any user can access at HSP.


During Family History Month, staff will introduce the vast collection of genealogical resources available both on-site and online through a special Genealogy 101 lecture series on October 7, 9, 14, and 16. Attendees will receive a free pass to the library to do their own research. Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania (GSP) volunteers will be available to provide personal assistance on the same dates as the workshops. Purchase the entire series here and attend the final workshop for free!
