Genealogy workshop offers research help from cemeteries to Pinterest

Sue Tone

NAGS has nothing to do with old horses or complainers. It's the Northern Arizona Genealogical Society, and members have a day full of courses on tap for beginners to advanced genealogists.

Participants can choose four one-hour classes from 28 workshops taking place from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, in Prescott. Lunch is included in the registration fee of $10 if paid by Oct. 21, and $15 afterward. Space is available for the first 200 people, and some classes may be limited.

In addition to workshops on military or probate records, and Scandinavian or Native American research, instructors will advise on how to use Google Earth to locate ancestors' homes, and how surnames change over time.

"Family Got You Over a Barrel?" is the theme, which fits Marilyn Day's photo of her father and his siblings taken around 1916 in New Hampshire. Three children stand inside a barrel with two more behind them. Day will be teaching two classes, one on finding treasures in probate records and one on using online research sources for cemeteries.

Other classes include using different internet sources and to best access information, and one on how to preserve family records.

The conference takes place at the Church of Latter-Day Saints in Prescott, 1001 Ruth Street. For more information and to register, visit nags.weebly.com or call 772-1741 or 445-8996.
