Nabb Center Hosts Family History Workshop January 24

SALISBURY, MD---Want to research family roots but don’t know where to begin?

Dr. Ray Thompson, director of Salisbury University’s Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture, hosts a family history workshop from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, January 24, at the center in the East Campus Complex.

“Who wouldn't want to learn more about themselves—where they came from, who their ancestors were and what they were like?” Thompson said. “But when people hear the word ‘genealogy,’ it brings to mind, dusty books, dry statistics and daunting hours of research work. Most people get discouraged before they even begin.

“For others, it's simply a matter of not having the time to spend hours online or studying historical archives researching their family history. Even the most enthusiastic beginning family researchers need some basic help to get started.”

Cost is $30 per person. To register or for more information call 410-543-6312 or visit the Nabb Research Center Web site at http://nabbhistory.salisbury.edu.
