PGS Events for the Week of 9-14 March 2020

Monday, 9-Mar-20 at 10:00 AM. Walking in their Footsteps--One of the fun things about genealogy is getting to know our ancestors as people, not just as names and dates on a chart. This presentation will help you to identify sources that can assist you in locating the precise locations where your ancestors lived and worked. Fortin,        Local History Room, Largo Library.
Tuesday, 10-Mar-20 at 6:00 PM.

Help on how to start - with information obtained in the New World. van Heerden. Local History Room, Largo Library.
Thursday, 12-Mar-20 at 1:00 PM. Skeletons in The Family Closet: Dealing With The Unexpected. We all find scandals, scalawags, and other surprises in the course of our genealogical research. This presentation discusses some of the unexpected, and sometimes unsavory, facts that may arise and ethical considerations to keep in mind when deciding how to share them. Fortin, Local History Room, Largo Library.
Saturday, 14-Mar-20 at 12:00-4:00 PM. Family History Assistance Day--Genealogists from the Pinellas Genealogy Society will be on hand to help you find your ancestors.  Free, individual assistance will be provided to each person who attends.  First come, first served. Be sure to bring what you know (names, dates, places of birth, death, marriages, residence, etc.) concerning your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. We will help you find earlier generations. Various PGS genealogists   Local History Room and Reading Room, Largo Library.
