The six-week series of classes on Beginning Genealogy funded by "Lights On" conclude this week.  The classes sponsored jointly by the Calhoun County Library and the Calhoun Historical Society have been deemed a huge success.

Class enrollment far surpassed anticipation with 20 individuals responding.  As a result, the class was divided in half, with approximately 10 members attending on Monday and the remaining 10 on Wednesday.

Class content consisted of learning the operation of the photocopier and microfilm reader/printer, research materials available and their organization, introduction and instruction on preparation of genealogy forms, charts and logs, hands on work sessions with individualized instruction, question and answer sessions, field trip to County Clerk's office, discussion on the importance of oral history and utilization of the Internet as a research tool.

The possibility of offering additional classes at a later date is currently being considered.

Classes were taught by Virginia Buck and Norma Shaffer
