In a recent announcement published in the August 2009 Issue of the Family Chronicle, there is a chance for you to learn how to trace New England roots:
Come Home to New England
August 10 – August 15, 2009. The staff of the New England Historic Genealogical Society invites you to participate in our classic intensive weeklong program, “Come Home to New England.” Research your roots with expert assistance at the extensive NEHGS library, one of the premier facilities for genealogical records in the world. Whether you are a first-time participant or have enjoyed this program in the past, you are sure to benefit from a visit to our library and extended time with our staff of professional genealogists as they welcome you “home” to New England. Throughout the week of guided research, you will have the opportunity for one-on-one consultations, daily lectures and special extended library hours. To register please call 617-226-1226 or mail payment to: NEHGS, Education/ Tours, 101 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116-3007.
Missing from the notice is the link to HisGen's website www.NewEnglandAncestors.org where some online research can be accomplished.
Sounds like a real opportunity to attend a daily class, and have on-site research assistance.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
