Interviewing People for Genealogy

MP900400353The Hutchinson Public Library is offering a series of free classes over the next three months to help people get started with genealogy research. The first class in the series is Tuesday, December 4, at 6:30 p.m. or Wednesday, December 5, at 9:30 a.m.

This first class will focus on how to interview family members who might have information. Personal stories make genealogy research come alive, and the holidays may offer great opportunities to gather material. Stories add texture to the facts garnered through traditional sources.

Instructor Patsy Terrell says, "People will learn how to use interviewing techniques to get the details you can't find any other way. It's important to capture those stories for future generations."

The class is free, but registration is required because space is limited. Call the Hutchinson Public Library computer lab at 620-663-5441, ext. 163, to reserve a spot.
