Family History Workshops

Want to learn more about how to research your family’s history? Family History Workshops are held at the museum in Serbin several times a year, though they are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When workshops resume, Weldon Mersiovsky will be on hand to assist with your research and answer all your questions. The registration fee is $15 per person or $25 per couple, which will be used to increase the museum’s family history holdings and genealogy resources. Bring a printed copy of your family pedigree chart (if you have one), a sack lunch, and your laptop (if you have one).  Please contact Weldon Mersiovsky at (512) 863-6418 or the museum for more information.
