Family History One-to-One

Family History One-to-One

Are you interested in your family history but have no idea where to start? Has your genealogy research recently hit a brick wall? Having trouble tracing an immigrant ancestor back to her country of origin? Do you want to learn how to use our online databases (Ancestry, fold3, HeritageQuest) more effectively?

Volunteer genealogist Lisa Dougherty can help. She has more than 20 years of research experience–using both conventional methods and online resources–and works regularly with the Irish American Heritage Museum, Heritage Hunters, and the Capital District Genealogical Society.
