Genealogy 101 Offered by County's Historical Society

Montgomery County's historical society gives residents a chance to learn their own family history.

Have you always wondered where your family came from? What their past jobs or homes were like? Do you know your great- great- great- great- grandparents? Would you like to?

On May 21 at 7 p.m., the Historical Society of Montgomery County (HSMC) will offer the low-cost course on "Uncovering Your Past: An Introduction to Genealogy." It is a four-course session, running on Tuesday nights for a month.

The class will be hosted at the HSMC's headquarters, 1654 Dekalb St., Norristown. Rose Brown, genealogist, will host the course.

"[Brown] will present a four-week genealogy workshop for beginners wanting to find their roots," explained the HSMC website.

The workshop will begin on May 21, 7 to 8:30 p.m., and continue every Tuesday through June 11. The class is slated to be held in the Meeting Room of Society Headquarters.

The only cost visitors will pay is that for the materials required.

"There is a non-refundable materials fee ($7.50 for members, $10 for non-members of the HSMC)," said the site.

Pre-registration is required for the four-session course.

"Seating is limited and registration will be taken on first-come, first-served basis," said the site.

For more information or in order to register, please call HSMC headquarters at 610-272-0297. More information is also available via the Society's event post on Patch here or on the HSMC website's events page.
