Librarian and genealogist Ann Palmer will cover the basics about immigrants to the United States from the 18th through the 20th centuries, and sources where records about them can be found.
The class is free and open to the public.
Because establishing a timeline is one of the best ways to get started, participants will learn how to determine when their families came to America from sources including passenger lists from ships docking at U.S. ports, census and naturalization records and in some cases passport applications.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For more information, call 336-318-6815.
