Duluth to host genealogy class

DULUTH -- The Duluth Historical Society knows there's more to accurately tracing your family history than a Web site. And as part of a monthlong series of events, it will host classes to show you how.

The classes, held from 7 to 9 p.m. April 20 and 27, will be led by Leah Gonzalez, a member of the Georgia Professional Genealogists. A former employee of the Georgia Archives, Gonzalez will show attendees how to search for ancestors, find them and make sure the information they find is accurate.

Registration and a $15 donation to the Duluth Historical Society are required and can be completed by calling 770-232-7584. Classes will be held at the Strickland House Museum on Buford Highway.

The Strickland House will also be offering a spring plant sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 17.

With professional vendors and master gardeners there to answer questions, flowering shrubs, knockout roses trees and pass-a-long plants will be available for perusal and sale. Handmade bluebird houses will be available as well.
