Trace Your Family Tree at the Library:

Yakima Valley Libraries to Host Genealogy Workshops



Yakima, WA – Beginning Saturday, August 17, Yakima Valley Libraries will host three genealogy and family history presentations at the Sunnyside, Moxee and Selah community libraries.


The workshops will be of particular value for anyone interested in researching their family history or preserving items like old photographs or documents.


The workshops will be presented by YVL’s Archives & Special Collections staff, who will provide useful tips for storing, handling and displaying family keepsakes, in addition to an overview of the many library services and resources available to help patrons trace their own family tree.


Each workshop will include informative handouts and time for attendees to ask questions.
