L314 Summer 2018 Family History Workshop
Thursdays, 11:50–1:15, June 21-July 26
Facilitator: Ray Beery
Many of us take delight in remembering our forebears through genealogy research. In this workshop, we will share what we have done, from beginner to sophisticated researcher and recorder. While the emphasis will be on research with the Internet, there will be old-fashioned library activity and the completion of forms integral to serious family history.
Ray Beery is a long time OLLI teacher. He has been collecting and building his family tree for some 30 years. His immigrant ancestors include Nicholas Bieri, a Swiss Mennonite who arrived in Lancaster County in 1727 and was one of the original Pennsylvania Dutch. Another was Thomas Farmer, who received a Jamestown plantation in 1625.
