Santa Clarita Valley residents can start, or continue, an ancestry quest at the 10th annual Valencia Family History Fair to be held 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The free one-day event is designed to provide members of the community with timely and helpful information and instruction for tracing the genealogy of their own ancestors.
Attendees may choose from among 25 different instructional presentations on subjects ranging from beginning research to advanced topics.
Classes of interest for teenagers will also be offered.
The fair is open to everyone free of charge and lunch at the fair may be purchased for $6.
The Family History Fair will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, at 24443 McBean Parkway in Valencia.
Housed at the same location, and also available to the public without charge, is the Valencia Family History Center. Established in 1978, it remains open during 45 hours of each week throughout the year.
