The Marshall Public Library is now offering the public a chance to delve deep into their family history with a new series of workshops.
Starting Tuesday, February 9 from 7 to 8 p.m., the library will host the first of five workshops to help residents write their families’ stories. February’s class “People and Events” will be hosted by Jacob Thomas and Jeffrey Howard, Ph.D. candidates and instructors at Idaho State University.
“Gathering names for your family tree is a great place to start. However, to really know who each person was and how they fit into your family history the stories of each family member must be told and ultimately preserved,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian at the Marshall Public Library. “What we’ve seen is that these priceless stories are being lost if they are not written down.”
Currently, the sessions are scheduled to meet monthly on the second Tuesday, and classes run through June. The classes are free and open to all members of the public but registration is required. To register for the first class, contact the reference desk at the Marshall Public Library at 232-1263 ext. 106 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
