The Education Committee of CCGS will again offer its course, "Constructing Your Family History", at the Barnstable Senior Center on Route 28 in Hyannis on 3 Mondays--October 7, 21, and 28, from 1:30 to 3:30pm. The course, intended for both those new to genealogy and anyone more experienced who would like a systematic review, will cover such topics as: supporting your findings with acceptable evidence, immigration, migration, use of the Census, searching vital records, using probates and land records, gravestones, Cape Cod resources, genealogical software, and techniques of using the Internet for family history research, among other topics. Each participant will develop or work with an existing family tree and learn about different approaches to genealogical investigations. Registration is $25 for the entire series and can be done through the Senior Center by calling Susan Griffin at 508-862-4761 by the deadline of Friday, September 27. Questions can be directed to David Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
