Library to offer free genealogy program
The Long Branch Free Public Library, 328 Broadway, Long Branch, will present a free genealogy program 2-3:30 p.m. Aug. 10 at the library’s community room. The program will explain how to research family members by using the extensive records of the U.S. Census Bureau.
The presenter will be Beverly Yackel, past-president of the Monmouth County Genealogy Society. Topics will include when and why the census was taken, what information it contains, how to access census records and how to document the information found about one’s ancestors. Anyone researching their family history will benefit from this class.
