TRACING FAMILY HISTORIES

Library staff from the Genealogy and Local History Department at Fort Bend County Libraries will provide an introduction to many of the free online resources that are available to the genealogical researcher. Tips and strategies for a more efficient Internet search will also be demonstrated.
The program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required.
