Has it ever occurred to you that you could get so much research accomplished if only you didn’t have to leave The Genealogy Center when it closes? Ever wondered what your friendly genealogy librarians are like as the hour approaches midnight? Have you fantasized about finding your ancestors’ ghosts in the stacks as the witching hour approaches? Your opportunity arrives on Friday, October 28, 2016, as The Genealogy Center stays open for Midnight Madness – extended research hours from 6:00 PM to Midnight! Stay to research and grab one of the three Mini-Programs (30 minutes each of quick tips), in the Discovery Center:

6:30 p.m., Digital Organization. Melissa Tennant will tell you how to create a personal digital collection, where your genealogical records and files can be readily organized, updated, and available at your fingertips.

7:30 p.m., Fabulous Free Websites.  Delia Bourne will introduce you to ten fabulous free websites to use in your research. Free is great, right?

8:30 p.m., Diggin’ DPLA: Some Tips on Accessing this Growing Resource. Curt Witcher will show you some tips for successfully using this growing database of links to important historical material.

Be in The Genealogy Center by 6 p.m. on Friday, October 28th, and remember not to park in the library garage, which closes at 6 p.m.

For more information, see the brochure. Register for any (or all) of these events by calling 260-421-1225 or send an email to Genealogy@ACPL.Info.

Remember that for each program you attend in October, and each time you interact with us on Facebook, you will be entered into a drawing for door prizes!
