Ancestry Database

Did grandma really get married in Las Vegas? When did my ancestors first set foot in the US? When and where did they first settle in Wisconsin? Am I really a distant cousin of crazy Bill? If you are curious about aspects of your family’s past and have never before used our Library Edition database, come to this introductory session. Bring with you the names, dates, and places of birth, marriage, and death of some of your ancestors (or older living relatives), and find out whether you can discover anything new about them or track their (and thus your) roots further back.
