Genealogy Workshop Starts New Year at SAR Library

On Saturday, January 17, 2015, the SAR Genealogical Research Library hosted its first event of the year. Nearly 50 people attended NSSAR Staff Genealogist Denise Hall’s hands-on genealogy workshop. Ms. Hall began the workshop with a short demonstration on how to correctly print documentation images from online sources. Often, lineage society applicants submit documentation that is unreadable or is an abbreviated form of a record, and this part of the workshop taught participants how to obtain the proper format.
