Chester County History Center to Host 30th Annual Genealogy Workshop Series This Fall

Chester County History Center

The Chester County History Center, along with Chester County Archives & Records Services, will host its 30th annual genealogy workshop series this fall.

The series will emphasize the basics of genealogy, and each individual lecture will focus on a foundational skill or strategy necessary for beginners and seasoned genealogists alike to uncover their family history.

There will be four virtual lectures, each hosted by a different genealogy expert:

  • Sept. 11 – Lisa Alzo: Online Genealogy for the Absolute Beginner
  • Sept. 18 – Sydney Cruise Dixon: The Foundations of Genealogy Research – The Four Elements, the Proof Standard, and the Necessary Documents
  • Sept. 25 – Shamele Jordon: Genetic Genealogy Quick Start
  • Oct. 2 – Kimberly F.B. Bucklaw: Back to Basics: Building a Research Foundation with the U.S. Federal Census

“It has been great to be able to provide genealogy workshops at the Chester County History Center since 1991,” said Chester County Archives & Records Services Director Laurie Rofini. “Genealogists have always been an important part of our researcher base, and we believe providing quality programming is a small way to say ‘thank you’ for their years of support.”

“Understanding our past and where we came from can have a real impact on an individual,” said Chester County History Center President Conor Hepp. “Learning about where your family lived, worked, and grew has a way of connecting you to your community. The best part of this journey is that it doesn’t have to be intimidating. All you need to do is to find a starting point and get a little help along the way. That is exactly what our programs are designed to do. To help everyone start their own journey.”
