"Genealogy Research Workshop February 10"

SALISBURY, MD---Family roots run deep on the Eastern Shore and faculty from Salisbury State University’s History Department will help aspiring genealogists trace their history. 

“We want to assist individuals in searching for their roots,” said Clara Small, SSU history professor who is co-hosting the event. “Even if your family is not from the Eastern Shore we can show them how to search the records.” 

Small and Dr. G. Ray Thompson, History Department chair, present the “How To’s for Genealogical Research–Tracing Your Family History,” on Saturday, February 10, at 2 p.m. in the Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture located in the Power Building near the corner of Wayne and Power streets.

The event is part of the African-American history Month celebration at SSU.

Some Eastern Shore families stretch back 300 years, Small said, and it is important for people to know their heritage and where they came from.
