Ancestry Day—a full day of genealogy classes at the Pennsylvania Convention Center—will return on Saturday, March 15. This popular genealogy event, sponsored by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP) and Ancestry.com, is designed to help researchers start or hone their genealogical skills. Attendees will learn tips for navigating Ancestry.com’s website and will learn more about HSP’s archive and genealogical records.
This fall, HSP will continue its series of genealogy workshops with three new programs. These workshops will be held on Tuesday evenings at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and begin at 6 p.m. They are open to the public and cost $15 each but are FREE for members. So if you're not already a member of HSP consider joining today.
On Monday, May 6, HSP will host a free Chinese American genealogy workshop, which will be held at the Independence branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. The guest speaker will be Jeanie Chooey Low, author of China Connections: Finding Ancestral Roots for Chinese in America, who is traveling all the way from San Francisco for this special event!
The workshop begins at 6 p.m. at the library, located at 18 South 7th Street. To register, click here.
