Beginning Genealogy returns!

Posted on

On Thursday, Aug. 16 the Library will be hosting a sharing session and discussion about Beginning Genealogy. Barbara Schlafer is returning to facilitate this discussion on how and where to begin your genealogical journey. The discussion will be free and help provide you with some of the tools that will enable you to start finding your roots, focusing on your individual interests in genealogy, and getting started on gathering your family stories. We’ll also look into utilizing resources both physical and on the internet, and how to organize your research. Space could become limited and advanced registration is required.

As a special treat, there will be a door prize given at the end of the session: a copy of Family Tree Maker 2012, being donated by Ancestry.com. To qualify for the drawing, you must be present and pre-registered for the event.

WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 16 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

WHERE: In the Robins Air Force Base Library, Building 905

Just a reminder…

We’ll be hosting a Beginning Genealogy discussion on Thursday, Feb. 16. The discussion will be from 6:30 to 7:30 PM in the library itself and you will need to register beforehand.

If you would like to register then please send us an email at robinsbaselibrary@gmail.com and put “Beginning Genealogy” in the subject line. Please register by Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 4 PM.

For more information please check out our previous post about our Beginning Genealogy session or send us an email.

Please don’t ever forget that February is Black History Month! We would like to take this month to highlight, suggest, and remind you of the many print and electronic resources here at the library that may be of interest to anyone researching, learning, or just reacquainting themselves with African-American culture and history.

We’re hoping to do several different programs during this month but we’d like to especially invite our younger patrons to come to our usual Story Time, which is every Monday at 10 AM. During every Story Time in February we’ll be learning about different African American achievements and contributions to American history.

We’d like to encourage local teens to tune in as the library celebrates the annual Teen Tech Week from March 4 to 10, 2012. We’ll be joining thousands of other libraries and schools across the country who are celebrating this year’s theme, “Geek Out @ your library.”

Teen Tech Week is a national initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) aimed at teens, their parents, educators, and other concerned adults. The purpose of the initiative is quite simply to ensure that young adults are competent and ethical users of technology, especially the types offered through libraries. Teen Tech Week encourages teens to take advantage of the technology at libraries for education and recreation, and to recognize how important it is to achieve a greater digital literacy.

More details to come but we are looking to do several activities for any young adults interested in participating, plus we’re always open to suggestions or interested in anyone willing to volunteer their time.

For more information on the national initiative, check out ALA/YALSA’s website for Teen Tech Week.

Oh, and let’s not forget to mention…

Our puzzle’s coming along pretty nicely. It looks like The Starry Night is finding a few more of its stars, as it were, but we can always use more help.

Stop on by and help us out with it, when you get a chance. And keep checking back here for more information on Teen Tech Week and Beginning Genealogy and other upcoming library programs.

Beginning Genealogy.

On Thursday, Feb. 16 the Library will be hosting a discussion about Beginning Genealogy. We’re calling it “a discussion” rather than a class or seminar because our presenter, Ms. Barbara Schlafer, wants to be prepared to deal with the needs with anyone who comes, be it the person starting off on genealogy as a hobby or the more experienced researcher (for example, if you wanted to join the Daughters of the American Revolution, that requires specific documentation). Our Beginning Genealogy session is free and will help provide you with some of the tools that will enable you to start finding your roots.

The discussion will definitely focus on your individual interests in genealogy and then getting started in gathering your family stories, discovering and utilizing resources that are both physical and on the internet, and how to organize your research. Space could become limited and advanced registration is required.

WHEN: Thursday, February 16, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

WHERE: In the Robins Air Force Base Library, Building 905

QUESTIONS/HOW TO REGISTER: If you have any questions or would like to register then please send us an email at robinsbaselibrary@gmail.com and put “Beginning Genealogy” in the subject line. Please register by Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 4 PM. We look forward to hearing from you!
