Trace your family roots at Albany's Central Library

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Central Library in Albany offers a class on how to start your family tree.

Sunday was the first " Trace Your Roots" class at the Central Library on Pine Avenue since re-opening in September. Teens and adults learn how to start their family history using census, military records and family interviews.

Class instructors want participants to understand how to research records and record them.

It basically gives them an idea of how their ancestors lived in the past and gives them a since of where they came from,” Laura Elliot, Youth Services Librarian.

The next class is on January 10th. The class is free and participants can sign up at the library.
