Sign up for a free family history lesson with two skilled family history specialists located at the Shelby County Museum & Archives. If you're a beginner, you'll walk away with a free FamilySearch account and a start on your pedigree chart. You'll learn the basics of navigating FamilySearch and learn how to add information and memories to your tree. With the help of these specialists, you'll be able to sort through census records, marriage records, and even records found here in the Museum with the information you bring in. Please come with as much information about your family members as possible, such as first, middle, and last names, maiden names, birth dates, death dates, marriage dates. If you don't know all that information, that is alright. Just come with what you have, and we'll help you find the rest. You don't have to be from Shelby County, Alabama, to participate. Our lessons are open to anyone interested in learning more about the family history.
