Discovering your family’s past

HAYDEN - Reaching into the past to discover long-lost relatives can be difficult without the proper resources.

That's why genealogist Kim Morgan is presenting "Finding Your Ancestors," a series of free genealogical research workshops held once a month at the Hayden Public Library.

"It makes you want to learn more history," said Morgan, program director and Daughters of the American Revolution member.

About 20 people attended Saturday's workshop, "Finding Your Ancestors: Scoundrels, Misfits and Other Colorful Ancestors." Attendees discussed genealogy research methods as well as some of the interesting links they have found within their family trees. Morgan provided the group with useful tools, such as advanced-search Internet tips and ideas to expand research.

"I think people have a need to know their roots," said Connie Godak of Hayden. "Whether for good or ill, we need to know what we're made of, and where we came from." Read more. Devin Heilman, Cda Press
