    • Start time: 01:00pm
    • End date: Monday, April 22nd
    • End time: 03:00pm
    • Roots. Branches. Shoots. You may think we’re talking about trees – and in a way, we are. We’re talking about family trees! A new Scarborough Public Library Genealogy Group will be offered the fourth Monday of each month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm starting October 23, 2017. Whether you are just starting to explore your heritage or well into the process, this monthly “drop in” gathering will introduce you to vetted resources for ancestral research.

      The group will be facilitated by Don Taylor, a retired Information Technology Security Specialist who became interested in Genealogy in the 1970s. Since 2005, Don has focused on genealogical research, specializing in Internet research and genetic genealogy. He is a member of the Maine Genealogical Society (MGS), New England Historic Genealogical Society, and is on the Board of Directors of the Scarborough Historical Society (SHS) where he helps others research their Scarborough roots. Don also manages a personal genealogy blog.

      Join us and start exploring your family tree; it’s free to attend! FMI, contact Adult Reference at 883-4723 option 4, or email askSPL@scarboroughlibrary.org
