This event is free and open to the public. The program is planned for 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, at the DuBois Historical Society, 30 West Long Ave., in DuBois.

Kopshina will share knowledge she has amassed during 12 years of conducting daily genealogy research and identifying around 11,000 people in her own family tree.
