Daytona Beach library presents three-part genealogy series
Ruth Patrignani, a longtime genealogy volunteer at the Daytona Beach Regional Library at City Island, will present a three-part genealogy series at 10 a.m. on June 4, 11 and 18 in the library auditorium.

The series kicks off with a session on the federal censuses from 1790 to 1940. Participants will learn what information they can find on a particular census (it’s not always the same) and how to track their ancestors in the various censuses.

The second class will cover primary and secondary sources. Patrignani will explain the differences between the two, where to find this information, how accurate it is, clues you might find, and more.

The third class will focus primarily on land and military records, but Patrignani is willing to adapt the class to discuss other subjects that may be of interest to attendees.

Reservations are requested and may be made by contacting Kim Dolce at or 386-257-6036, ext. 16315.
