Date: 6/14/2011
Start Time: 9:30 AM

  "My great, great, great grandmother was born in Vermont and I want to know everything you have about her." GASP!!... That statement sends a shiver of panic through many a librarian who has ever heard it. If you’re one of those or you’d like to be well-armed when you DO face the question, this workshop is for you. You will receive an introduction to the basics of genealogical research and record keeping, followed by presentations to familiarize you with the genealogical resources at the Vermont Department of Libraries, Vermont State Archives, and the Vermont Historical Society.

Meg Page, from the Vermont Department of Libraries, will lead the introduction to genealogy portion and will fill you in on what resources for genealogical research the DOL has. Scott Reilly, Archivist, Vermont State Archives and Records Administration, and Paul Carnahan, Vermont Historical Society Librarian, will introduce you to the parts of their collections that are of particular interest to people doing genealogical research.
