Genealogy Forum 2024

Genealogy Forum 2024

Have you ever wondered who you might be related to or how your family came to the United States or more specifically to Pennsylvania or Ligonier? The Ligonier Valley Library's Genealogy Forum will help you develop the tricks and tools needed to trace your family lineage, start your own family bible, or just learn more about family history in general. Each forum meeting focuses on some aspect of family research and occasionally features a guest speaker. Progams are led by or organized by the library's Pennsylvania Room Archivist.

2024 Forum Meetings:

  • January 23 - Networking Night
  • March 26 - "Research in the Westmoreland County Recorder of Deeds Office": presented by Frank Schiefer, Recorder, and Gerry Fjellanger, Senior Clerk.
  • May 28 - Research in the Register of Wills Office presented by Shirley Iscrupe
  • September 24 - Movie Night
  • October 22 - Show & Tell with Your Family Treasures

 

The group meets on the 4th Tuesday of January, March, May, September, and October from 6:00-7:00 PM. Genealogy Forum meetings are free and open to the public. For more information call the library at 724-238-6451 or email paroom@ligonierlibrary.org
