Upcoming Genealogy Programs at the Watkins Museum

Genealogy Classes are led by Alisa and Richard Branham.

Richard Branham is a KU professor who has been researching his family history for 40+ years.  Alisa is a KU staff member who caught the genealogy "bug" from her husband about 20 years ago; previously she worked for the Kansas State Historical Society. They have traveled across the U.S. and Great Britain to visit their ancestral homes and research in numerous genealogy libraries, historical museums, and local archives.

Class registration fees (unless stated otherwise) are $10 for DCHS members, $15 for non-members. You may sign up online or contact the museum at 785-841-4109. Class size is limited; we recommend signing up in advance.
