601. A Few Carmel Genealogy Items



FINDING FAMILY CLASS
Five-week class will be taught Oct.  7, 14, 21, 28 and Nov. 4 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Training Room, 2nd Floor at Carmel Library.  The class includes how to get started, how to organize your information, what kinds of records are available and how to find them.   Everything builds on the first class so it is important to attend the October 7 session.  A comfort level with computers is recommended.  The course is free but limited to 18 and attendees need to register by calling the reference desk at the library (844-3362).  Taught by Sue Dillon  

GENEALOGY FORUM
Held on 3rd Tuesdays, 1-2 p.m. in the Training Room, 2nd Floor, Carmel Library.  This is an opportunity to expand your knowledge, ask questions, and network with others
September 15 – “You Have a Story to Tell” – Carolyn Parrott, personal historian and founder of Kept Memories, LLC, will lead this month’s forum during which she will teach us how to turn your ancestral charts into a personal history that your family will treasure for years to come.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity.
October 20 – “New Ancestry” – You may have discovered that Ancestry has a new format for creating a family tree on their website that they are calling “New Ancestry”.  Sometime in the future they will be switching to this format permanently.   I will show you how to use it and demonstrate the new features that I think you will like. 
November 17 – “What’s New on Family Search”  -  Always changing and growing with new categories and data, this month’s topic will focus on how to search the website and what you can expect to find.
