Genealogy Workshops

Genealogy workshops are a great way to learn about family history topics of interest to your research.

The Ohio History Connection’s Archives/Library, the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society (FCGHS), and the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) jointly offer a series of workshops designed to help family history researchers find out about the many records and resources available for research.

The workshops offer an in-depth review of methods, tools, and sources for exploring your family’s history. We offer in-person workshops, hands-on technology topics, and webinar presentations. See individual workshop descriptions for location, date, and time.
