Family History Day 1!

Our last drawer from last week:




Did you know that October is Family History Month?  Did you also know that the Henry County Historical Society and Museum has a stellar genealogy library containing much history on local citizens?

Don’t know where to start researching your family history?  Start with yourself!  A pedigree chart is very helpful in recording the vital statistics for yourself, spouse, parents, grandparents, etc.  You can do this on paper or use genealogy software.  This helps show you the information you don’t know and where you might start your research.
