Start climbing your family tree at Downtown Library


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — “You never know until you ask” is a common phrase that easily could be applied to the study of genealogy. You may not know as much about your family as you think you do until you start looking into it.

A desire to help you search for your ancestors is the driving force behind “Genealogy 101” at the Downtown Library, 300 Park Ave., at 2 p.m. Sept. 28.

“A lot of people are interested in tracing their family history,” said librarian Lisa Bradley, “but the process seems daunting and they just don’t know how or where to start. This session is for beginners who want to find out about the basics, and it presents an overview of the genealogy websites that can be accessed from the Metropolitan Library System website.”

“Genealogy 101” is free and open to the public.
