Registration forms are available at the library or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Deadline for registration is March 24, 2017.
This year's keynote speaker is Wisconsin Historical Society archivist Lee Grady, who will give a presentation about searching for ancestors in the records of county and state institutions, including prisons, schools, hospitals, and sanatoriums. There will also be an optional "breakout" session with David Johnson, who will share his tips and tricks for "Foolin' Around with Ancestry.com.”
Participants will have plenty of time for independent genealogy research using the library's many genealogy resources like newspapers, census records, city directories, and more. Library staff and volunteers from the DCGC will be on hand to answer questions and provide one-on-one assistance to participants. Attendees are welcome to bring their own laptop or device, or they may use one of the library computers to access online genealogy resources. 3
Attendees are welcome to bring a bag lunch, or they may request that a box lunch be provided. They can indicate their sandwich selection on the registration form and bring $8 to the event (cash only) to cover the cost of the lunch. The box lunch includes a sandwich, chips, potato salad, and pickle. Beverages will be provided by the Friends of the Library.
