Visit the institution's web, blog, or Facebook pages for a number to call or an e-mail address to confirm availability. Experienced researchers know to do this at least a week or two in advance of a proposed research visit.Read More...

Connecting to the Past: Genealogy Program on Saturday

Perhaps you remember this Island Packet story back in February?

Kim Morgan and Akosua Moore have agreed to give us something of a reprise. They've nicked and tucked; researched,reviewed, revised, and compiled. This second outing is sure to be even more revealing than the inaugural event (which in case you missed it, was absolutely wonderful!)
