Interested in your family’s history? Where it all began? How you got here?

Norfolk County Archives and Eva Brook Donly Museum will present the first annual Genealogy Symposium Sept. 28.

Aimed at both beginners and avid genealogists alike, four speakers including three professional genealogists and one local historian will be on hand providing information on conducting family research history.

“This is our first genealogy symposium and it is very exciting for us,” said Joshua Klar, archivist at the museum. “We plan on making it an annual event and hope to further develop the symposium in the years to come. Events similar to this symposium have been run in the past at the museum and we are hoping to bring back this tradition.”

Tickets for the event go on sale July 30 and are priced at $25. They can be purchased at the museum (109 Norfolk St. South in Simcoe) or by calling 519-426-1583.
