Beyond the Hours: Digging for Your Roots

Attention family history enthusiasts! The Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society and the Heritage Room present a research lock-in! You’ll have access to the Heritage Room on a Tuesday, when we’re usually closed. We’ll offer scanning sessions plus 15-minute quick tip classes on Family Search, Ancestry, Fold 3, and FindmyPast. There will also be a 5pm Immigration and Naturalization class to help you research those ancestors who immigrated to the United States during 1880-1920 — the Great Wave. All are welcome to attend any of these sessions which will be in Multipurpose Room A. COGS volunteers and Heritage Room staff will also be available to help with research questions. Registration is required to ensure materials for every attendee. The registration deadline is Oct. 17 at 8pm. Register at
