Registration is now open for “Genealogy with the Foley: Vital Records Are Vital for Genealogy,” a free online Zoom class offered by Nevada County’s Doris Foley Library for Historical Research on Thursday, June 30, 2022 from 1 PM to 2:45 PM. Instructor Susan Rogers will discuss birth, marriage, and death data, known as vital records, which form the building blocks of a family tree.

Participants will learn when states started requiring these records, where to find them, substitutes for vital records that can’t be found, and more. An eight-page handout will be sent to all registered participants.

Rogers is a frequent presenter to genealogical societies in the greater Sacramento region and a teacher of genealogy classes for the Sierra College OLLI program.

Participants must register to receive the Zoom link to the program and the handout created by Rogers for this class.
