Build your family tree from scratch

The first meeting of the amateur genealogy research club, Ordpu (from Komi - kin tree), will take place at the National Library of the Komi Republic on 18 March, at 16:00.

The knowledge of family roots and history often characterizes a close-knit family with strong traditions. Every family is a unique bond of people of different generations related by blood, but not all families keep record of their ancestors. At best, we can recall the names of our great grandparents, but seldom trace the family history to the seventh generation.

Members of the Ordpu Club will study general practices used by professional genealogists and historians, learn to apply modern techniques of searching and locating archive documents. Guest speakers will also present true stories of genealogical discoveries and fascinating facts about families from the Komi Republic.

The club meetings are intended for those who are interested in their family histories and wish to build their own family tree from scratch.
