Hayes Research Library Head Librarian Becky Hill, an experienced genealogist, is instructor for the class. She will share the basics of how to begin a genealogical search, covering such topics as: how to interview relatives, create a genealogical chart, find resources, and make the most of every piece of information. Each person attending the class receives a series of handouts that will assist in the process of creating a family tree.
At the end of the day's workshop participants are taken on a tour of the Hayes Research Library, which contains one of the area's most extensive collections of genealogical resources.
The library also has a number of Internet-connected computers available for use free of charge. Staff is on hand to offer individual attention to those wishing to begin their research immediately. Guidance also is available on how to use the Hayes Presidential Center website - www.rbhayes.org - which contains the Ohio Obituary Index, a name index list of 2.3 million obituary notices published in newspapers throughout Ohio.
