The public is invited to a free, professional program on family history research using school records, Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 6 pm.

School records can enrich any genealogist’s research. This presentation will help you to know what school records could be available and where you can find them. Even if your ancestor didn’t go to school, this presentation will reveal school records where your ancestor just might be mentioned.

Melissa Barker presents the webinar program; followed by member’s school records research and research tips.

Members and guests are invited to bring an item from old school records, but with supporting evidence (research) such as a photo of the person connected to it, school photograph, a map showing the school, news article about the school, or another related item. Multiple records or items are solid research for family histories.

Visitors and members are invited to bring their lap tops.

The workshop is presented by the Genealogical Society of Burlington, Wisconsin. Those attending are researching ancestors from all around the world, not limited to the Racine/Kenosha area, not limited to Wisconsin, or even to the Midwest, but from anywhere.

The program is held at Gateway Center, 496 McCanna Parkway, Burlington, WI 53105
