The Whitfield-Murray Historical Society is partnering with the Chatsworth-Murray County Library to offer a FREE Beginning Genealogy workshop for area residents on Tuesday, August 4 and Wednesday, August 5. The workshops will focus on research specific to Murray County and participants can attend either or both days.
Tuesday things get underway at 9 a.m. at the Library.
The first hour will be spent discussing various local resources that could help researchers find more information about Murray Countians of the past--unusual, out-of-print, or unique publications in the collections of the Historical Society. The session will then move to the Murray County Courthouse where beginners will learn how to use the various public records available there. The session will conclude around noon.
Wednesday morning from 10-12 there will be a special session at the Library about using ancestry.com and internet resources for research.
Historical Society members Tim Howard and Marcia Kendrick will be leading the workshop. The Library is located on Old Ellijay Road across from the Murray Medical Center. For more information, contact the library at 706-695-4200.
