Intro to Genealogy – October 10, 2019 – Memorial Hall at the PML – 7:00 pm Want to start looking into your family history but don't know where to start? Want to try out research without having to spend a lot of money for online resources? The Pollard Memorial Library reference staff and Lowell Historical Society members will be offering an introduction to genealogy with helpful hints on how to organize your research, what tools to consider, free resources both in the library and online, and much more.  

This program will offer an overview on where to start, things to consider, resources available both for reference and primary documents, and helpful hints on doing your tree offline.

After the program, the library staff will take you to the PML reference area to show you the resources available for genealogy enthusiasts and researchers so that you can get started on some of your research! Hints about other organizations who have historical documents around the city will be provided as well as online resources to obtain greater insight.
