Jan 27, 2017  10am-noon   No-Host Activity  -- Genealogical Forum
What do you know about your ancestors? Would you like to find out more? PAT-Retired has scheduled a class for you at the Genealogical Forum of Oregon in SE Portland. The instructor, a retired Portland educator, Nanci Remington, will share her tips from researching her own family history to help you find information about your ancestors.  This is the same class that was offered about two years ago.

Also, there will be a tour of the library and the services that are available at the Forum.  You will be able to stay at the Forum to take advantage of their online resources.  It would be helpful if you brought your own laptop to do research. Nanci will also be giving suggestions of on-line resources that you can use.  For teachers still working in the classroom, these research tools can help get your students interested in finding out more about their family history.
