That is why the library is offering the My Family Tree for Kids classes in December. Besides having a chance to visit with relatives, students are out of school, and starting a family tree is a great activity. Organizations such as 4-H and Scouts have projects or badges that involve genealogy, so students can get a head start! It is thanks to the Friends of the Library that we can offer these classes for free.
Our classes will be offered on Saturday, December 28. The morning class, from 9:30-11, is open to grades 3-6, and the afternoon class, from 2-3:30, is open to grades 7-12. The registration deadline says December 22, but if you know someone in 3rd-12th grades who is interested in learning genealogy, they can still sign up! Give us a call at 522-3412 x 1243 or register online at www.myjclibrary.org/events.
