Join us each Thursday evening in the Library Reading Room during regular season hours for a full hour of genealogy instruction. These genealogy sessions will take place each Thursday night from 6:30-7:30PM, beginning March 14th and running until December 12th. All it takes is an hour to hone your research skills, get started on the basics, preserve your documents, get organized, become more familiar with genealogy software or share your genealogy success stories!

This December, Join us for a special Brick Wall Panel! Our panel will consist of several local/national genealogy experts as they address common problems as well as real-life brick walls submitted by our audience!
Session 1: Tackling Common Brick Walls
During this session, our panel will discuss common brick walls encountered by most researchers – as well as various methods for breaking through these common challenges.
Session 2: Brick Wall Cases and Discussion
During the afternoon session, our panel will be presented with real brick wall problems as submitted by the audience. Brick wall challenges were collected from our regular 2nd Saturday attendees over the summer and fall to be submitted to our panel prior to the event. The panel will have had approximately two months to look over the challenges for a possible solution.
