WestportREADS 2019: Explore Your Genealogy

Saturday, Feb 23, 2019 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Sara Krasne,  incoming president of the Westport Historical Society, will show you how to research your family background using library databases, Ancestry and Heritage Quest. Best practices for virtual and in-person research will be explained so you can go and find your roots!

Sara Krasne is the archives manager and chairperson at Westport Historical Society, following a 5 year tenure as a board member. Educated at California University of Pennsylvania with additional studies in genealogy, Sara has traced the history of Westport’s founding families including some of the later immigrant families. Her most surprising genealogy finds have been found in researching her own family, where there are dastardly criminals and Hungarian Nobility. Her work as a genealogist supports research and exhibits at Westport Historical Society as well as visitor requests. Sara is the mother of two little boys and originally hails from Gilpin Township, Pennsylvania.

WestportREADS is funded by the estate of Jerry A. Tishman.
