The Niagara County Genealogical Society Presented the program "Beginning Genealogy." NCGS Board Chairman Shelley Richards spoke on how to get started. This program was a help to both beginners and experienced researchers alike. Richards taught the basic tools of genealogy, covering such topics as newspapers, birth and death certificates, web sites, church records, census records and much, much more. She also showed how to fill out all the different charts that genealogists use.

For genealogists, census records are an essential and invaluable source for geographically locating their family over time, as well as for pointing to other original, primary records for additional information.
Craig Bacon, Deputy Niagara County Historian, joined us to provide an insight into these records. A lifelong resident of Lockport, Craig has always been interested in history and family genealogy. He is a relentless detective when it comes to family mysteries. He is also an aspiring writer and playwright.
This program is essential for those who wish to improve their understanding of census records of all types and to hone their skills in working effectively with these important resources.
