Event description

Description

July 29 – August 2, 8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

HSP presents a week-long genealogy course designed to explore the records and repositories available for researching ancestors in Pennsylvania. This is a complete “how to” course, training you to use the resources available at HSP and elsewhere to uncover your family’s story!

This course is designed for all levels from beginners to experienced family historians with a curriculum that takes participants through three primary questions:

  • What records are available?
  • Where are the records located?
  • How to decipher what you discover?

By the end of this course, you’ll have answers!

Friends of HSP support the institution’s mission by providing philanthropic donations that fund general operations. Learn more about the benefits of giving at hsp.org/friends.

Enrollment will be limited to 40 persons on a first come, first enrolled basis. No Refunds can be issued after June 28, 2019.
