Climb Your Family Tree at the Connecticut State Library

Carol Ganz, Reference Librarian, History & Genealogy

"Who lived in our house?" "Who made this tool?" "What does history have to do with my family?" Climb Your Family Tree at the Connecticut State Library, the new exhibit in the Museum of Connecticut History, introduces viewers to the basics of genealogy and illustrates the fact that the study of family history is more than just constructing family trees. The display provides some suggestions for getting started and demonstrates examples of common resources to track down the facts. The exhibit, provided by the History and Genealogy Unit, will be in place until February.
