Instructor: Mary Somerville

If you are just starting family research, this class is for you!   Some people have very specific reasons for tracing their family tree. Others jump into family history research without giving it much thought. Knowing why people research their ancestors can be a source of inspiration and support for genealogists. … Genealogy can provide a doorway to the past. This workshop introduces the first-time family researcher to the fascinating field of genealogy, its unique nomenclature, and suggested research technique and avenues.  It may also be of value to researchers with limited experience who wish to refresh their skills.  

Advanced registration through this website is strongly recommended.

Mary Somerville retired in 2013 after 20+ years as a financial consultant in Washington DC.  She has a BS in Economics and an MBA. Mary started working on her own genealogy to join the DAR and found genealogy extremely interesting as well as absorbing and enjoys talking about it to other people.
