A great opportunity to do just that is offered during Family History Month in October. A demonstration of the Davenport Public Library’s genealogy subscription databases including tips on creative searches in Ancestry, Heritage Quest, Fold 3, Origins, Genealogy Bank and Newspaper Archive will be offered at two different times for adults; no fee; no pre-registration.
