This Saturday, Aug. 13, the Archuleta County Genealogy Society (ACGS) will host “Genealogy Roundtables” from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church on Lewis Street, in downtown Pagosa Springs.
The event is free and open to the public, with coffee, tea and snacks provided.
ACGS will have 12 tables set up and feature a 30-minute interactive presentation by club members — everything from how to get started in family research to tips on breaking through brick walls when you just can’t seem to find that long lost ancestor.
Each table will have handouts, laptop demonstrations, and open discussion on any questions you might have about your own research techniques. Perhaps there are places you never thought to look for that great-great-grandfather who seemed to disappear from the planet, without a trace. Or maybe you’d like to locate a grave without driving all the way to Missouri to take a photo of the headstone.
Today, there are so many public resources available on the Internet, many at no cost, that you could find what you’re looking for without leaving Pagosa Springs.
ACGS also maintains an extensive collection of books and periodicals at the Sisson Library and will have a sampling of that collection on display.
Whether you are a beginner or experienced researcher, or just curious to see what genealogy is all about, join members of ACGS on Saturday, Aug. 13, for “Genealogy Roundtables.”
Who knows, you just might find exactly what you’re looking for!
