The Lackawanna Historical Society is pleased to announce its Winter Genealogy Forum Schedule. The Forum was created in late 2019 to provide LHS members and local residents who are interested in tracing their ancestry with an opportunity to come together to share experiences and provide helpful hints to others who are seeking their roots. The Forum, which was planned to be a monthly in-person meeting, soon went virtual due to the COVID-19 shutdown. A group of 15-20 members tuned into Zoom each month to discuss research methods and useful techniques for finding public records, searching for cemeteries, and using online sources.
During the winter months, the sessions will be virtual via Zoom. These sessions will focus on finding basic genealogy records on a local, state, and national level.
