Library to Host Ancestry Workshop

The Department of Planning and Natural Resources, in keeping with the mission of the Division of Libraries to maintain and improve the quality of library services to the community, has planned a family ancestry workshop at the Enid M. Baa Public Library.
For Virgin Islands History month, the library will offer a workshop designed for both novices and intermediate researchers. From 9 a.m. to noon, on Saturday, March 28, speaker Leayle Robinson, who is vice president of the Caribbean Genealogy Library, will give a general overview of family history research. Robinson will identify resources and explain how to get started and share best practices. This workshop is intended to educate community members in genealogy research and to foster an appreciation for family ancestry.
This event is supported by DPNR-Division of Libraries, The Friends of the St. Thomas Public Libraries and First Bank of the Virgin Islands.
For more information, contact Annice Canton at 774-0630.
