Family History Open House at Sherburne History Center


October is Family History Month!  Join us on Saturday, October 12, 10:00am to 2:00pm for a Family History Open House at Sherburne History Center.  A Family History 101 presentation will be given at 10:00am and noon. Staff and volunteers will be available in the library all morning to help you start your family history journey.  Even if your roots are not in Sherburne County, the skills and resources taught at this event will help you get started tracing your family genealogy.  There is no cost to attend, but those who register by October 10 will be given a free “getting started” packet.
