EWGS's very own Miriam Robbins (formerly Miriam Midkiff; new name, old smile) is again offering great genealogy classes through the IEL/Community Colleges of Spokane. There are three:
GENEALOGY-Military Records, 1 Nov, 6-9pm, $25, Centerplace (in the Valley); "Is there a veteran in your family tree or story about an ancestor who served in the Civil War or Revolutionary War?" Miriam will teach you how to find him and records about him. (Or her?)
GENEALOGY-Vital & Cemetery Records, 8 Nov, 6-9pm, $25, Centerplace; "Not sure how to go about tracing your family tree? Learn to use vital records and cemetery records for the basis of your research."
GENEALOGY-Who Do You Think You Are?, 4 Oct to 25 Oct, 6-8pm, $49, Centerplace; "What do you know about your ancestors or your heritage? In this beginning online genealogy class, learn to start your search, confirm family lore and use the different records along with Internet resources to trace your family tree."
Call 279-6030 to register for these classes or email Miriam with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org). For the eager but timid beginner, Miriam will take you by the hand and you'll be confident in no time!
