WHITTIER - Boy Scouts can earn a genealogy badge by attending a free genealogy workshop in Whittier.The workshop is offered in two parts, Dec. 21 and Jan. 18, by the Whittier Area Genealogical Society. Although the workshops were created for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and all young people ages 11-17 can attend. In preparation for the workshop, scouts are urged to read through the genealogy merit badge book and print out the worksheets. Scouts are asked to come to class in Class A uniform and bring their signed blue card. Participants will be asked to submit work completed over the month. At that time, merit badge blue cards will be signed off by the merit badge counselor. Register by calling Trish Garcia at (562) 907-0723 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
