Genealogy FUN-damentals: Services—to buy or not to buy?

Posted by Barbara Peck on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 12:50 PM

Come to Westport Museum for History and Culture on Wednesday, Jan. 8, from noon to 1 pm.  Brown bag your lunch and learn the basics of DIY Genealogy from acclaimed WHS’ Archives Manager Sara Krasne!

Learn more about the ins and outs of doing family research on your own, resources you’re familiar with along with lesser known avenues of discovery.

We will explore the question—do you need to buy a genealogy service? Pros and cons of services and comparisons between Ancestry and other companies will be delved into—as well as introductions to free online resources for which you don’t need to use a paid service. 

Bringing a laptop is highly recommended, but handouts of materials will be available in limited quantities.

Cost: $15. Next class will take place Mar. 11, 2020. 

Pre-registration recommended, register at or call (203) 222-1424 x5.
