The Calhoun County Library, in conjunction with the Calhoun Historical Society will be holding a six-week series of classes on beginning genealogical research.  The series will be held at 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. each Monday evening, beginning July 9 and continuing through August 13 in the Knotts room at the library.

Classes will consist of introduction to the genealogy and history room at the library, the various types of research materials available, and how to use the facility for research.  Also included will be instruction in the use of the microfilm reader/printer and copy machine.

The course will offer "hands on experience" in a workshop environment, with participants performing actual research on their family.  Help will be provided on an individual basis and participants will progress at their own pace in performing actual research and documentation.  A trip to the Calhoun County Courthouse is also planned to help acquaint the class with the records available there.

Classes are free of charge and will be taught by Norma Knotts Shaffer and Virginia Weaver Buck.  Funding will be through the "Lights On" grant.

Pre-registration is desired, but not necessary.  Interested parties are, however, are asked to bring, to the first session, information on births, deaths, marriages, etc. which they may already have.

For further information or to pre-register, please call Norma Knotts Shaffer at 354-0098 or Virginia Weaver Buck at 354-6034.
