Norwegian American Genealogy Workshop is one of the Wisconsin Historical Society WHS Workshops in 2016.
The Stateline Genealogy Club @ Beloit Public Library will be having a webinar on Friday March 11, 2016 “Uncover Your Scandinavian Roots” at our 10 a.m. – noon program. I am posting this early so that you have a chance to sign up for this related WHS workshop. It may work out for your schedule to attend one or both.
WHS Topics vary each semester. Register early — space is limited.
All workshops are held on Saturdays at the Memorial Library on the UW Madison campus. They provide an opportunity to focus on your research with other researchers, sharing ideas and moving forward with your family history research. Lunch is provided.
Our workshops always feature hands-on learning opportunities led by specialists in North American history and genealogy.
Experts in genealogy teach you how to best use the Society’s nationally recognized collections of published and unpublished materials for researching family histories as well as the newest online products for historical and genealogical research.
Programs are geared to all levels of experience and offer something for everyone, from beginners to advanced.
