GRAFTON, Mass. - The Grafton Historical Society will hold a genealogy workshop Sunday, Feb.10 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the society’s museum, 1 Grafton Common, Grafton Center.

Conducting the workshop will be Suzanne Stewart, Director or Research Services for the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston. The workshop will be suitable for beginners as well as those who have already begun doing research.

“Interest in tracing family histories is on the rise, but figuring out where to start, and identifying and navigating the many online ancestral databases can be daunting,” said Linda Casey, president of the Grafton Historical Society. “We are indeed fortunate to have a genealogical expert like Suzanne Stewart running our workshop, in which attendees will learn effective research methods and how to get the most out of available resources.”

Attendees should bring any documents or information for research they currently are working on or would like to begin researching. Laptop computers are not necessary, although attendees are welcome to bring them.

There is a required donation of $10 per person for the workshop, and reservations are required. Refreshments will be served. To reserve a place, or for further information, please call Linda Casey at 508-839-0000.

The Grafton Historical Society Museum, at One Grafton Common, houses an extensive permanent collection representing all aspects of Grafton’s rich history from the Native American era forward.

It is open to the public on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  Visitors and new members are welcome, whether your family has been here since colonial times or is new to town. To join, please contact the society at 508-839-0000 or drop by the museum.
