I hear it all the time – “I don’t have time for Genealogy.” While a pandemic isn’t the way I like to interest people in Genealogy, it is effective! Everyone trapped inside with nothing to do? Now is a GREAT time to do Genealogy. You can even make it a family affair, and the people at Ancestry agree with us. Until June 30, 2020, you can access Ancestry Library Edition from home with your library card!

If you aren’t sure what you are doing or need some extra help, use the Learning Center on their web site or check out the RBDigital database, which has free access to Family Tree Magazine. Family Tree Magazine has a variety of helpful hints and web sites they recommend. You can also create a free personal account at FamilySearch. And check back soon for the opportunity to meet one-on-one with me remotely! In the meantime, if you have questions, please send them to obits@spokanelibrary.org and happy hunting!
