Genealogist Pamelia Trask of Windsor will share her expertise on how to research your family using traditional genealogical methods and software/internet programs such as Ancestry, Family Search, and My Heritage.

You are welcome to bring your laptop or iPad and connect to the library Wi-Fi. Pamm will project the various sites for you to see what is available from birth and marriage certificates to newspaper articles. Handouts will be available on what is in the Philip Read Memorial Library and the Special Collection for family research, at the Plainfield Historical Society, and what has been researched for the Plainfield Genealogy that is available at the library.

Join us for this informative session. Beginners welcome. This program is free, but donations are always gratefully accepted for the Plainfield Historical Society.

Pamelia Trask Zimmerman is Mayflower Descendant, a longtime member of the National Genealogical Society and the New England Historic Genealogical Society and has been trained by leading genealogists such as Elizabeth Shown Mills. Pamm has taught family history and is experienced
preparing membership papers for lineage societies such as the DAR. She currently leads a group at the Windsor Library, which meets twice monthly.
Her special areas of interest are the restoration of female identities, family and community migration patterns, and ways in which the internet is enlarging research possibilities, while simultaneously narrowing them. She is a native of Windsor and has fond memories of her 4 years attending Plainfield’s 3-room school.

Philip Read Memorial Library is handicapped accessible.
