You can also sign up for a free 6-week drawing course on Gale Courses! Gale Courses has classes in writing, marketing, photography, technology, and so much more.

Dive Into Your Family History!

Read through your family's 1930 Census records, find a relative's marriage record, and fill in branches on your family tree with Ancestry.com and the rest of our Geneaology Resources. It's a rewarding solo project or a fun way to teach kids research and family stories! 

Ancestry.com is free to use from home through the end of April with this link. You may need to click on a browser message or click "advanced" to proceed if you get an error message. Questions? Need to create a PIN? Email adultservices@addisonlibrary.org.
