As far as families go and family trees or history, some people are incredibly curious to know more about their roots.

For me, I've never been curious enough to explore that using for example one of the many paid services offered online.  Admittedly, as much as I have spent money on less worthy ventures, I think my biggest hang up is I don't care enough to spend much on researching my family.

Also along those lines, I personally know people who have run into finding out things they maybe didn't want to know.  In particular finding out they aren't actually a blood related sibling to someone.  For me, that wouldn't be a bother as I don't look at family as a blood relation connection.  I have plenty of people that are close friends I consider family more than some of my blood family.  Though, to some, it's a big deal finding out there isn't blood relation.

If you are curious, and want to see how inexpensively you can explore your family history, the Duluth Public Library is hosting a free event to help you in a quest to do just that.

Libraries in themselves are a great way to lookup your family through articles, newspapers, and various other avenues.  To aid you, on Tuesday September 19th, members of the Twin Ports Genealogical Society will be on-site from 6:00PM-7:30PM.

Along with other experts, they will be teaching about resources available at the library and beyond that can help you chase that family lineage.
