Free family-history classes at the School Mom’s Building Museum & Gallery (the former Seymour Public Library) on West Market Street, just off the northwest corner of the city square, will continue for the next three months, officials from the Seymour Historical Committee said.
“The classes held during November were a huge success, so due to the increasing community interest in these free classes, they will continue for the next three months,” said Helen Lamb, the committee’s president.
The open-to-everyone classes use the free genealogy website from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, called FamilySearch.org, which can be used by anyone, anywhere and anytime, even from one’s own home.
The free classes at the local museum, located at 123 West Market Street, will be held during December from 1 to 4 p.m. every Friday afternoon and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
Walk-ins are welcome on Fridays, organizers said; however, appointments are required on Saturdays.
In January and February, classes will be held at the same times by appointment only.
