Free Family History Workshops Return to Marshall Public Library

Marshall Public Library

Next month, the Marshall Public Library is offering patrons the chance to learn how to preserve their rich family histories. Starting Tuesday, September 6 at 7 p.m. at the library, Idaho State University instructors and PhD candidates Amy Howard, Jeff Howard, and Jacob Thomas will be teaching attendees how to bring their family’s story to life. Starting with “People and Events,” the three-part workshop will show residents how to write and preserve their clan’s history. “A family tree only tells you so much about the people contained in it,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian. “You’ll find names and dates but not the story of who the people that make up the tree truly were. That’s why it’s so important to take a family’s often oral history and preserve it by writing it down.” Classes will be held on the first Tuesday of the month and will wrap up November 1. The classes are free and open to all members of the public, To find out more about this program or to get a list of books related to family history research, contact the reference desk at the Marshall Public Library at 232-1263 ext. 106 or via email at acampbell@marshallpl.org. For more information on any of the programs offered by the Marshall Public Library, visit marshallpl.org.
