Winter Schedule of Genealogy Club meetings
Save the Date: Feb. Genealogy Club "You've Received Your DNA Results - Now What?"
Thursday, February 23, 12:30-2:00 (New date)
February’s Genealogy Club topic is “You’ve Received Your DNA Results – Now What?”  The number of people having DNA tests done has skyrocketed, but when the results arrive many are unsure about how to use the information in their family history research.  This presentation will focus on practical steps that can be taken to reveal new family history facts and will not be an in-depth scientific discourse on DNA methodology.  This talk will be held in the Genealogy and Local History Section on Thursday, February 9th, 12:30-2:00 with a snow date one week later

Individual hour-long free Genealogy Consultations with Kathleen Maclachlan are now being scheduled on the first Thursday of each month; please contact Kathy by email  February time slots are already filled; she is now scheduling for March 2nd and April 6th.

Kathy will be at the library working on the collections on other non-club meeting Thursdays and will be on hand to answer brief questions as you work on your own research using our material, our subscription, or your own files.
