“Digging for Your Roots” is Nevada County Genealogical Society’s 20th annual Genealogy Seminar coming up later this month. Group founder Maria Brower says  they offer this seminar once a year to help people find their ancestors and learn a little more about themselves.  There will be two sessions for beginners  and for those who don’t need the basics they will cover new territory.
