Czech Festival April 28 in Blue Rapids will host Jan Wilkes, a genealogist, who will make a presentation at 11:00 am at the Community Center on how to use the features in the free web site www.FamilySearch.org. Jan will search for information on your ancestors so you have a few weeks to gather some basic information such as names and dates to start your hunt. She will also discuss subscription web sites that can be accessed in Family History Centers.
At 2:00 that afternoon, a second session will be held at the Public Library on the Square. Bring your laptop if you have one. Jan Wilkes has done extensive family genealogies and has a talent for turning tiny leads into a whole new branch of the family. This is a rare chance to have help from her on finding more about your ancestors.
