Genealogy-Focused Tech Classes and Workshops
Computer technology is constantly changing—and so are options for genealogists.
The Ridgewood Public Library (RPL), offers a variety of classes on computers, genealogical research technology, and record keeping. Past topics have included: Using Ancestry LE (Library Edition), Internet Genealogy, Researching Online Census Records, Ellis Island Records, City Directories, Jewish Genealogy, Evernote for Genealogists, and Imaging for Genealogists, among others. Classes are taught by GSBC experts.
Classes are held in the Technology Training Center at RPL, and are limited in size to eight students. Registration is required. A fee of $5 applies to GSBC members and Ridgewood residents, and $10 for others.
You may register over the phone (Reference Desk at (201) 670-5600 ext. 3), but must come in within 24 hours to present your GSBC card and pay. You may also register in person at the Reference Desk in the library. No registration is required for classes held in the auditorium. All classes require basic Internet skills.
