Event Details

Family History Hunters is an informal meeting for genealogists of all levels of experience. Led by genealogy specialist Joan Wood, the group meets monthly to discuss tips and strategies for researching family history. Each meeting begins with a short presentation on a particular topic followed by a discussion where members are welcome to talk about their research successes and challenges. Whether you are a veteran researcher, or just beginning your family history, please join us.

The presentation this month will be "An Introduction to Research in Archives and Manuscript Collections." Archives and special collections can be valuable sources of genealogical information, but finding your way around collections of old records and family papers can sometimes be challenging. In this presentation you will learn how to plan and get the most out of your visit to an archives or special collections library. A brief tour of the Stewart Bell Jr. Archives will follow.
