Researching your family history can be daunting, especially if you don't know where to look. In this educational and inspirational webinar, learn how to access records of your Salem ancestors and what resources are available to amateur and professional genealogists by some of the leading repositories in New England. Continuously inhabited for millennia and a port of entry for people from all over the world, Salem, Massachusetts has a diverse range of genealogical records, many of which are available to the public. Join Essex Heritage with the New England Historic Genealogical Society, the Phillips Library at the Peabody Essex Museum, and the Southern Essex County Registry of Deeds to get a "how-to" on filling in the Salem branches on your family tree. Following the webinar will be a Q&A with the panelists. 

Preceding the event, Kate Fox from Destination Salem will provide an introduction to Salem Ancestry Days and highlight some of the events and programs available to participants this year and in the future.
