Trace your family treeby jmaloni
A three-part adult education program at Niagara-Wheatfield is being offered starting Oct. 13 on the tricks of the trade in gathering research into family history.
Peggy Taylor-Hulligan will be sharing her knowledge, experience and short cuts to finding what you are looking for quickly and accurately.
"I think it is so important that people know their family history. It is so interesting, you never know what you are going to find. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it will even make you shake your head in disbelief," she said.
"I had a relative who had six wives, none of them older than 19, and I am thinking who was he - Jack the Ripper?" she said with a laugh. "You see a lot of sadness of women who died in childbirth or find records of an ancestor who fought in the Civil War. I even had a relative who had 21 children. We always have a lot of laughs in class over what people discover."
