Dead Relatives

Dead Relatives

Location: Study Room 2

Come join us to do research. This is an informal study/research group that meets at the library. The library supplies computers (but you can bring your own laptop) and a staff member, along with access to the subscription databases. Doing research in a group lets us share our brick walls and the thrill of breaking down our brick walls. Come join in with the camaraderie of doing family history together.
