Find your roots

Church holds free family history seminar on Oct. 17.

The largest family history event in the Lower Mainland, hosted by Surrey congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will be held Oct. 17.

The 20th-annual Finding Your Roots Seminar is open to everyone in the community, and features a variety of workshops taught by instructors who can help anyone learn more about documenting their family history.

Participants are given a choice of 38 classes scheduled throughout the day. Courses for beginners are designed to give them the basic skills needed to be successful at family history. Other courses target more advanced genealogists and family historians, offering a wide range of tools and techniques to help in their quest to expand their family tree.  Attendees of all experience levels welcome.

The event, which takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is free of charge and open to the public. For more information and course descriptions, visit the website at www.findingyourroots.ca

Pre-registration for the classes is encouraged. For a nominal charge participants can sign up for lunch. Cake will be served to all.

The church is located at 6270 126 St.
