Event Description

Virtual Genealogy Basics: Searching with Confidence

The Salinas Public Library hosts the “Virtual Genealogy Basics: Searching with Confidence” Workshop on Tuesday, April 13th at 5:30pm.


Researching your family history can be fascinating, and frustrating. Whether you’re gathering all sorts of information or laser-focused on one ancestor, there are habits and techniques that can help you make the most of the time you have.

We’ll cover strategies for effective searches, options to help manage record-keeping, and leveraging search goals to make the best progress on your genealogical research.

Public libraries have a long history of offering equal and open access to information, education and enrichment to the communities that they serve. At the Salinas Public Library, we are committed to helping every member of our community achieve their educational and vocational goals, as well as providing safe and inclusive spaces for residents to meet, learn and connect with one another.

The Salinas Public Library has proudly served the community since 1909 when it first opened its doors as a Carnegie Public Library. Today, there are three branch libraries, John Steinbeck Library, Cesar Chavez Library, and El Gabilan Library, with services available 7-days a week. The collection includes more than 100,000 books, magazines, movies, and audiobooks, and a Steinbeck Special Collection of more than a thousand books, articles, and artifacts.
