CGL Offers Workshop on Using Funeral Booklets for Family Research

Caribbean Genealogy Library will host a free workshop on Using Virgin Islands Funeral Booklets for Family Research. The workshop will be held from 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Caribbean Genealogy Library located at Al Cohen’s Plaza on Raphune Hill.
CGL has recently catalogued its growing collection of funeral booklets. The workshop will provide an introduction to the collection and will assist attendees in learning how to use this unique resource for family research. They will learn how information from funeral booklets can help to expand a family tree, fill out a family history and provide clues about the origin or travels of family members.
This is a hands-on workshop and space is limited. To reserve a place, speak with any volunteer librarian at 714-2136, or e-mail caribgenlibrary@gmail.com
