Learn about 'Using Ancestry' at meeting

The Oklahoma Home and Community Education Genealogy Group will host a discussion this month on how Ancestry is a popular tool used by genealogists searching for their families' histories.

Pam Kirkland will speak on "Using Ancestry" at 10 a.m. Nov. 19 at the Oklahoma County OSU Extension Center, 2500 NE 63. She will touch on some of what is available on Ancestry and where it can be found. Ancestry offers family researchers access to documents, many with images, and has basic records like Census, birth, marriage and death records.

Kirkland has been teaching and researching family history for 40 years. Born in California but living in Oklahoma for the last 35 years, she graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in history and has a certificate in Professional Genealogical Research through Brigham Young University. Kirkland has been the director of the Family History Center in Moore, and has directed indexing for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints for many years. She is retired from the Mid-Del School Nutrition program, enjoys gardening, youth camps and helping others solve their own family history mysteries.

This program is open to the public, and masks are required. For more information, go to www.ohcegenealogy.com or search OHCE Genealogy on Facebook.
