Beginning Genealogy

Learn how to find your ancestors. Sheila Morris will present this talk aimed at those about to start out, and those who are relatively inexperienced. She will discuss records, methods, best practices for research, and organizing the information you find. Bring as much information as you can about your grandparents; births, marriages, deaths and where they lived. After the talk our volunteers can help you get started using our many resources.



Reading French Vital Records

September 26, 2015


Vermont Genealogy Library
377 Hegeman Ave. (Across from State Police)
Fort Ethan Allen
Colchester, Vermont

One does not need to be fluent in French in order to get information from vital records in the language, but one benefits from knowing a number of key words. For our purposes having the words for the months, days, words that tell you whether it is a baptism, marriage, or burial record and a few others can help you unlock the information within. The church records also usually followed a pattern for each type of record. Tom will teach you the general formulas and where to find the name(s) of the individual(s).
