The Drumheller Public Library is going to help you track down your ancestors. 
 
Starting on Tuesday, November 29, at 2:00 p.m. and running until 5:00 the library is holding a genealogy workshop. 
 
"(There will be) three sessions, which are going to be about 45 minutes in length with 15 minutes for answers and discussions," stated Debbie LaPlante, Assistant Library Director. 
 
"The first one is going to be kind of a flashback on Ancestry.ca, our library version. The second one is on our local resources that we've been working on archiving and the third one is a session looking at how to identify and date old photographs," explained LaPlante. 
 
This is an extraordinary opportunity if residents are wanting some assistance in basic ancestry searches. 
 
"Lots of people are trying to figure out where people came from. Those are sometimes eluding most people because they don't really know how to search for somebody or what they can find when they do search. There's other people that have been doing it for quite some time, but they still get stuck on something," mentioned LaPlante. 
 
The Genealogy Workshop will be held in the Cenovus Programs Room at the Badlands Community Facility. There is no cost.
