If you are interested in learning how to do family research, solve “brick walls or road blocks,” and write for future generations about your family history, this class is for you. Computer experience is recommended but not required.

A Beginning/Intermediate Genealogy class will be offered at Spring Lake Village, 5555 Montgomery Dr. in Santa Rosa. At the Santa Rosa Family History Center, 1725 Peterson Lane, a beginning class and three advanced genealogy classes will be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
