Tell Your Friends About Family History Assistance Day

Dont forget, the Pinellas Genealogy Society and the Largo Library will sponsor a Family History Assistance Day at the library on 13 March from 1 pm to 4 pm.

See the entry for 1 March to get more information on this event.

Perhaps you have a friend or relative who has been thinking about starting research on his or her family. This event would be an ideal time for them to receive some help to get started. Volunteer researchers will be on hand to help people do actual research.

All participants need do is collect known information about their ancestors, write it down and bring it with them. Useful information would be birth, marriage, and death dates and places (if applicable) for at least parents and grandparents. More is better, but the key is collecting what is known and bringing it along. Volunteers will then use that information to begin research for additional information.
