      Nineteen people recently participated in the DuBois Area Historical Society’s genealogy for beginners program. Barb Emmer, genealogist for the Society, conducted the class focusing on how to begin the process of collecting facts, files, and data to discover one’s roots

       The presentation explored means of obtaining this information both free and pay. Emmer explained the sources available locally at the historical society and how they can contribute to the family history of those who live, or once lived in the DuBois area. The DuBois Area Historical Society library offers many kinds of sources, collected and maintained for easy access. These include city directories, obituaries, marriage announcements, yearbooks, church records, etc.

       Additional genealogy research programs will be announced at a later date.
