Genealogy 101

Garrett Memorial Library

Sunday April 17th, 2016

3:00 pm

 

Have you ever wanted to learn more about where you come from and not sure where to start. Come to Garrett Memorial Library Sunday, April 17th at 3:00 pm for a chance to learn how to get started. We have Dennis Allen from the Iowa Genealogy Department coming to give presentation on Genealogy 101. It is free for all those who would like to come. Space is limited so please call for reservations 641-642-3664 during library hours or contact us on Facebook or our website.

 

Here is a short biography on Dennis:

 

Dennis Allen has been doing genealogy since he was 20 years old.  As most genealogist, they find an area that they really like and try to share.  Dennis’ 2 areas are technology and cemeteries.  He has taught classes for places like FamilySearch at their Missouri Conference, the Iowa Genealogical Society at their Fall and Spring Conferences, Midwest Genealogy Center, Omaha Public Library, along with multiple places in Kansas, Missouri and all across Iowa. 

 

He currently volunteers at the Riverside Cemetery in Marshalltown, Iowa.  The cemetery has 24,000 plus graves.  He stepped in to help them get started with digitizing, taught them how to use their current computer software along with working in the field for them. He was also a 6 year member of the Des Moines Cemeteries Citizens Advisory Committee. 

 

He has raised and cleaned headstones for them.  He has taught multiple genealogical classes and headstone cleaning classes for them as well.  Teaching the safest ways for the student and the stones.

 

He has also helped a few small cemeteries, map their cemeteries, with Microsoft Excel.  Along with showing them how to link their indexes to the maps they create.
