A new G.A.H.S. series with Genealogist LESLIE WICKHAM

Learn the basic techniques to researching your family using free and subscription based websites.

Also, learn tricks to potentially find your ancestors in old books or newspapers.

Time will be allotted for specific family questions so bring information with you. This program, the first of a series on Genealogy, is presented by Leslie Wickham, a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and descendant of an accused witch in Salem, MA.

This program is supported by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.

Additional support provided by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society.
