Welcome to this weeks SCDL Tree Talk Tuesday! It’s that time of year when, the leaves begin to change, nights get cooler and best of all we celebrate family! October is Family History Month and as I mentioned last post, we here in the Genealogy Department have an entire month of family history programing to celebrate! Check back here at the blog often for tips, tricks and what classes are being offered during the week to help you build your family tree.
To kick of the month long celebration. Lauren Landis will be teaching two classes on Saturday, October 5th at the Plain Community Branch. The first class will be “Genealogy Basics.” It will be from 1-2:30. During this session you will earn how to organize and begin to trace your family tree.

The second class will be “Using the Federal Census Effectively” This sesssion will be from 3-4:30pm and will cover what you can find both written and implied about your family using the census records.
Can’t make Saturday’s program? Then join us Monday evening as we explore “Digging Up Your Roots @ SCDL” This class will be taught by Stephanie Houck and will be held Monday, October 7th at North Branch from 6-7:30pm. During the class you will learn what the Genaelogy Collections holds and how it can help in researching your family tree.
