Celebrate Family History Month with genealogists at the library

“Tracing Yesterday’s Paths to the Present: A Celebration of Family History Month” comes to the Bainbridge Public Library from 12:15 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5.

Family History month celebrates the discovery of stories within our families. Mentors from the Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society will be available for free 30-minute tutoring sessions to help you start — or continue — your search for your family’s path. Just bring a question and information about your family as a starting point for conversation.
