If you’ve always wanted to put the leaves on your family tree, the Essex Library is offering a free four-session class, Introduction to Genealogy, taught by Edwin W. Strickland II of the Connecticut Society of Genealogy, beginning Saturday March 8 at 2 PM, with a different topic covered in each of four successive Saturdays. You’ll learn how to find and search vital records, church and cemetery records; how to create family group sheets, how to search census records, city directories, and newspapers, how to use internet resources and genealogy software, and much more. This program series is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County. The class series is offered free and is open to all; we do request that you register in advance, and you can do so by calling the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue.
