Getting Started with Family History Research: Tips for Beginners

ASU Project for Writing and Recording Family History offers community workshops

Have you thought about tracing your family’s history but don’t know where to begin? Join ASU professor of English Duane Roen on Saturday, Sept. 9 from 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the Tempe Public Library for this free community workshop designed for those who have little or no experience in researching family history.  Professor Roen will describe some readily-available resources, tools, and strategies for getting started with researching your roots.  

The session is part of the "Tempe Writes at the Public Library" series. 

Roen is founding coordinator of ASU's Project for Writing and Recording Family History, in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU's Polytechnic campus. Although he loves family history, Roen spends most of his waking hours serving as dean of University College, dean of the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, and vice provost of the Polytechnic campus at Arizona State University. Visit the Project for Writing and Recording Family History events page to learn about other community workshops scheduled throughout the year.
