Tying History to Your Research: Do you know how to interpret your findings on an ancestor in light of history?  Are you looking at what was happing in the area, the country, and the world for the time period being researched?  How often do we hear that a family emigrated from Ireland in the 1830s due to the potato famine which did not start until 1845?  We need to examine history very closely so we can better understand our ancestors and how they lived their lives.  We will examine several situations you should be aware of that will aid you in telling their story.

They meet at the old train depot where they have a great museum and lots of research materials. To learn more, click HERE.
