Just a reminder that the third program in the Genealogy for Librarians series, brought to you by the Maine State Library, is tomorrow (Thursday, 20 January) from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Join us at 5 p.m. for Genealogy for librarians: resources beyond Ancestry at https://mainestate.zoom.us/j/89348864614 (meeting ID: 893 4886 4614). I'll be covering where to look for resources that Ancestry doesn't have. In addition to genealogy questions, several of the resources I'll be covering are good places to refer patrons looking for local history or other historical topics.

The first program on the absolute basics is at https://youtu.be/ScCh6cSAjIY and the second program is at https://youtu.be/1E_zO4GgmgQ if you want to catch up. The handouts are at https://mainelygenealogy.com/2022/01/06/genealogy-for-librarians-handouts/.

Details of later programs are below.

With people getting DNA tests results from holiday gifts and long winter evenings ahead, it's genealogy season! Learn how to help your patrons start their research off well with the new series of Zoom programs Genealogy for Librarians from the Maine State Library.

Genealogy questions continue to be a large part of adult reference services; this series is designed for those who have little or no experience answering genealogy questions.

Each individual session will start at 5 p.m. on Thursdays and be a 45 minute presentation, plus time for questions. The presentations will be recorded for those who can't make the scheduled time.

We'll start with the absolute basics ~ no experience necessary. While the series will focus on resources for assisting patrons, if you are interested in your own family history ~ feel free to join in as well!

Handouts are at  https://mainelygenealogy.com/2022/01/06/genealogy-for-librarians-handouts/
