Glenmeadow Learning Presentation on Genealogy

EAST LONGMEADOW – Glenmeadow Retirement will offer a presentation on how to begin a personal genealogy research project on Tuesday, June 30 from 10 a.m. to noon at Bay Path University’s Philip Ryan Health Science Center.

Kathy Grady, program coordinator for the Longmeadow Adult Center who has provided classes at the center on genealogy and assisted many with their family searches, will present “ Genealogy 101: Finding Your Family.” Grady will delve into how to start a search into the past and what resources are readily available.

The free event will be held at Bay Path University’s Philip Ryan Health Science Center in room 223 located at 1 Denslow Road. Seating is limited, and registration is required; call (413) 567-7800 or Visit for more information.

Grady has been working on her own family tree on and off since 1977. With degrees in history and social psychology, her interest lies not just in who her ancestors were but in what their lives were like.

Established in 1884, Glenmeadow is a nonprofit, accredited continuing care retirement community; it provides independent and assisted living at its campus at 24 Tabor Crossing in Longmeadow and expanded Glenmeadow at Home services throughout greater Springfield.

“As a nonprofit, our mission is to serve seniors and their families. One of the ways we do that is by providing free educational offerings in convenient locations throughout the area,” said Tim Cotz, president and CEO.
