The Chickasaw County Historical and Genealogical Society recently hosted a family research class. 

Have you ever wondered where your family came from?

Many people do but don’t know where or how to start looking for family information. The Chickasaw County Historical & Genealogical Society recently held a series of classes to teach the basics of looking for family information.

There were three separate workshops, with each one lasting three hours. Two were held on Saturdays and one on a Thursday night. The total number of people attending the workshops were 17.

The workshops included learning how to fill out pedigree chart, family group sheet and starting a family tree on Ancestry.com.

Space was limited so interested persons were required to register in advance. Each person that attended was asked to bring a lap top or tablet to the workshop. There was no charge to attend.

There will be additional similar workshops held in the future. If you are interested in attending a future workshop please contact Tabitha Cheney at 662-786-1384, or send an email to chickasawhistoricalsociety@gmail.com.
