On Thursday August 10th in the atrium at Lambert Castle (3 Valley Road, Paterson) the Passaic County Historical Society is conducting a hands-on workshop for children entitled “Where do I come from?: Family History for Kids.”
Join us for an afternoon of family history activities with our librarian, Patrick Byrnes. This workshop is a great introduction to family history and historical research. Learn how to make your own family tree, take an oral history quiz and learn how to start a family archive. Free with regular admission. Recommended for children of all ages and fun for the whole family. This event is free and you can stop by any time between 12pm-4pm.
Passaic County Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, was founded to cultivate interest among individuals and the community-at-large in the rich history of Passaic County. To this end our museum in Lambert Castle showcases examples of the County’s cultural and artistic diversity, as well as examples of the County’s natural, civil, military, and ecclesiastical history. The Society also maintains a library and archive, which houses manuscripts, books and photographs of historical and genealogical interest.
