Family History Research

Family History Research with Connie Briggs, Family History Researcher.
Make an appointment to find out about your ancestors! All you will need to bring with you to begin your research is the name and place of residence for one or more of your ancestors living in the U.S. between 1850 and 1930.  This will also work if you have an ancestor living in the UK between 1841 and 1911.

Using Connie's laptop, the Internet, and some great online resources, she will show you how to trace your family tree back in time. Maybe you will find some lost family secrets! CLICK HERE to send an E-Mail to Connie or call 267-626-4437 to make an appointment for her to meet you at the Ambler Branch or the Main Library in Blue Bell for a private family history session.
