When undertaking one’s genealogy there may be quite a few obstacles.  Sometimes learning about a new resource or way to search can be all that you need to move your research ahead.

On Friday, October 18th from 9 am – 2 pm, ‘Starting or Continuing Your Family Research’ will be offered by the Dorchester County Historical Society for all levels of researcher.  Sue Brenchley, multi lineage society member and researcher will lead attendees through the basics and beyond.

Attendees are asked to bring their materials with them, including a laptop if they work with one.  Basics will include hands on, online database searches, recordkeeping forms and more.  As important as finding the information, the organization of the same is critical.  Ms. Brenchley will demonstrate multiple ways to accomplish sourcing and organizing materials.

DCHS is based at the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester at 1003 Greenway Drive in Cambridge.  For DCHS members there is no cost, for others the cost is $10 per person.  To reserve a spot, please call 410.228.7953 or email
