The Tyler Public Library is inviting all to explore the world’s largest collection of free family trees, genealogy records and resources on For those curious about their family history, presenter Scott Fitzgerald will host a presentation on Saturday, May 13 at 9 a.m., to learn about this great resource and how to trace family roots.


Scott is the current 1st Vice-President and Quarterly Editor of East Texas Genealogical Society and has served as President for five years. He was made a Fellow of the Texas State Genealogical Society (TxSGS) for his contributions to TxSGS and Texas Genealogy.


“The Library is thankful to welcome back Scott Fitzgerald from ETGS to teaching the community about genealogy,” says Access Librarian, Connie Greer. “For this class, he will be using Heritage Quest, which is an online resource the library receives through the TexShare databases and users can access free of charge.” 


This class will be held on the third floor of the Library in the computer lab.
