The annual Fenton History Center Workshop Series begins this month. The 2023 series will focus on various ethnic groups. All workshops will be held on Saturdays from 10:30 to 12 noon at the Fenton History Research Library at 73 Forest Avenue. There will be six workshops, and the cost is $10/class or $50 total if you sign up for all six at once and are a member. If you are a non-member the cost is $20/class or $100 if you assign up for all six classes at once. You can sign up in advance at the Fenton or can pay at the door. We will not Zoom these programs but will tape them for later viewing on our website.
The first program features Research in Ireland, appropriate for March and St. Patrick’s Day and will be presented on March 25th. The remainder are: Dutch Research on April 29th, Research in Scotland on June 3rd, German Research on August 19th, Research in the Maritime Provinces of Canada on September 16th and Norwegian/Danish Research on October 21st.
We will be continuing the ethnic theme for our workshops in 2024 featuring England, Polish, Eastern European, Italian, French and a multi-part series on Sweden.
