The “Beginning Genealogy Classes” will be offered on Feb. 20 and 27 and on March 6, 13, 20 and 27 in lower level conference rooms A, B and C at the Vigo County Public Library, Seventh and Poplar streets. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with the classes running from 6 to 8.

Class size is limited to 30. Class fee includes all materials, a one-year free membership in the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society, and a year’s subscription to the WVGS newsletter, “Wabash Valley Generations.”
