How Libraries Can Help With Your Genealogy Research

WHAT??!! Research a library BEFORE I go?
• What does this library have to offer a genealogist?
• What geographical area does its records cover?
• What period of time do the records cover?
• How extensive is the collection?

For 33+ years, the Polish Genealogical Society of America has been an important resource for individuals, novice thru seasoned, looking for their Polish roots. They can help you deal with the myths and challenges of ethnic research.

You are invited to attend a special one-time meeting at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, 500 N. Dunton Ave., Arlington Heights IL, Sunday, August 14, 2011 – 2 P.M.

Library opens at noon, closes at 5:30 p.m.; ample free parking; restrooms; liquid refreshments; walking distance from NW train station.

Michael Mulholland, Local History/Genealogy Librarian & PGSA member, will focus on how to research before you visit a library to determine if the collection will help with your research; lecture followed by tour of the genealogy collection.
