  • Helwig Builds Family Tree Online

  • image
  • Sarah Helwig, a self-described “history nut,” had no idea that chancing upon a Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) tent would launch her on a genealogical journey. Sarah’s grandmother, who accompanied her at the time, suggested that her mother’s Wigton bloodline might lead to the Revolutionary War. Inspired by the possibility, Sarah has since discovered connections to the likes of Theodore Roosevelt and J.D. Rockefeller.
  • With the help of Teton County Library’s genealogy classes taught by Lynn MacDowell, and its Ancestry Library Edition database, Sarah has powerful tools to dig into her roots.
  • “Lynn’s awesome. She’s taught me a lot and always has new things to show me,” Sarah said. “And Ancestry.com has been really helpful. Not to mention, it’s free here!”
