The Southbury Library will host Genealogist Janeen Bjork for a talk on how to find your family in online newspapers on Thursday, July 26 at 2pm in the Kingsley Room.
Janeen Bjork applies to genealogy the detective, analytic and presentation skills she garnered in a 30-year career as a television researcher. Her own family tree, and the trees she has done for friends and clients, is richly illustrated with newspaper stories that range from the mundane to the sensational. She'll introduce us to some of the characters she has discovered and to the research methods that made it possible for her to find and preserve their legacies.
Janeen has offered popular Genealogy classes and presentations for the last five years in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. Her engaging and interactive presentation style uses audience participation with actual examples and case studies to prepare audiences to find the family members and stories that have eluded them.
Sponsored by the Janet Mann Genealogy Gift Fund and the Heritage Village Genealogy Club
