Chattanooga Public Library Hosts Internet Genealogy Workshops

Here’s more about the upcoming workshops from the Chattanooga Public Library:

1940 U.S. Census Released
To highlight the extensive Internet genealogy resources made accessible through the Chattanooga Public Library, the Local History and Genealogy Department is holding a series of free workshops.  To the delight of genealogists, the eagerly awaited 1940 U.S. Census has been released.  Because many of the 1940 records have not yet been indexed, Mary Helms, Head of the Local History Department, will guide participants through step-by step search methods.

Subscriptions to leading genealogical databases have been purchased by the Chattanooga Public Library for use by library patrons.  These include Ancestry Library Edition, HeritageQuest Online, Fold3, World Vital RecordsAmerican Ancestors by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and the Tennessee Sanborn Maps.  The use of these and other Internet resources will be covered in the workshop.

Eastgate Branch:   Saturday, May 26, 10:00 a.m.  (423) 855-2685
