Getting Started with Family History, via Zoom

Monday, November 27

1:00-2:15 pm


This program will outline the basics of genealogical research, identifying standard steps to take; discussing popular genealogical websites; and identifying types of sources. It’s geared toward those just starting with their research—but also will provide a refresher for those who have already begun. We’ll allow plenty of time for Q&A. 


The presenter/facilitator will be Penny Stratton of Seaglass Village in Massachusetts, retired Publishing Director at New England Historic Genealogical Society (, coauthor of Guide to Genealogical Writing: How to Write and Publish Your Family History.

This virtual tour is open to everyone and is part of our collaboration with Little Falls Village. Register online. FHNN members or volunteers who need help registering can email with History in the subject line.
