Event details

The DuBois Area Historical Society is sponsoring another genealogy program by Barb Kopshina, noted genealogist from the area.  This workshop is scheduled for Thursday, April 18, 2019, at 2:00-3:30 p.m. at the DuBois Area Historical Society, 30 West Long Avenue, DuBois.

Kopshina, who attended a week-long seminar from the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) last summer, will present new findings about church records, local land records, probate documents, immigration passenger lists, newspapers, and maps. This information will be of special value to family historians looking for new genealogical clues in their research.

Kopshina will share knowledge she has amassed during 12 years of conducting daily genealogy research and identifying around 11,000 people in her own family tree.  She will also share information from a recent genealogy conference she attended at the Genealogical Institute of Pittsburgh.  The course, “Pennsylvania Research: Walking in Penn’s Woods” tracked family histories in Pennsylvania through the use of church records, newspapers, military records, and more. For additional information, contact Barb Kopshina at (814) 375-4755 or email at bkk125@psu.edu

There is no fee to attend.  Everyone is welcome.
