10th Annual Genealogy Conference Kicks Off

The tenth annual Genealogy Conference starts this weekend at Angelina College. Hundreds of people will attend a variety of workshops to learn the latest techniques for tracing their family tree.

There are many ways to research your roots, including county records, a genealogy center or public library. Research can take weeks, months or years depending on how far back in time you want to go.

The two-day event kicks off Friday morning with seminars on going digital and using maps in genealogy. The conference will be held in the Community Services building.
