Local genealogy enthusiast Carl Bloss will share the joys of learning about one’s family history. According to Bloss, tracing your roots can help you learn more about the members of your family whom you never had an opportunity to meet. Beginning your family research can seem confusing and often intimidating due to the large number and varying type of websites, libraries and printed resources to access. These classes are designed to help learners navigate the steps in tracing your family history and share helpful strategies for your continued journey.

Berks Encore-Strausstown is located at 44 East Avenue, Strausstown. For more information or to register for Introduction to Genealogy, please contact Strausstown center manager Andrea Gebely at 610-488-5770.
