For Mary Harrell-Sesniak, “Genealogy is not just a pastime, it’s a passion.” The study of family ancestry can require searching many sources, but she hopes to make it easier for anyone willing to dig. Sponsoring a free program through the Kingwood Branch Library, Harrell-Sesniak offers a hands-on approach through research and source development in an engaging two-hour course. “There are several places online where one can go to glean accurate and up-to-date information,” she said. Participants are allowed access through library computers, while Harrell-Sesniak provides printed, detailed charts. She said she is hoping to minimize ‘dead-ends’ in research by giving them several websites to use. Some websites she suggests are common like Ancestry.com and DistantCounsin.com. She does receive many interested in military genealogy and World War II enthusiasts. “The Military History War Library is a site people can find enormously valuable in locating information,” she said. The next genealogy session will be Feb. 11 in the library’s training lab. For more information, call 281-360-6804.
