Mining For Genealogical Gold in Federal Records:A Two-Part Workshop with Linda MacIver» 10:30 am - noon
You haven't done that "reasonably exhaustive search" unless you include more than the usual federal records. It really is a myth that our families weren't important enough to be in records preserved at the National Archives!
Space is limited. Registration is required. (Participants must be able to make both Parts 1 and 2).
UPDATE: As of 3/11/19 registration for this course is now full, however we are taking a few names on a wait-list should a space open up.
This is not a beginners class. Some experience with genealogy research is preferred.
To register stop by the Circulation Desk or call the Library at 781.334.5411 or 781.334.6404.
