It is time again for the start of the Family History Coaching program at the Central Library. This long-running program is very popular and we are happy to be able to offer it again. The Family History Coaching program is offered in conjunction with our partner, the Alberta Family Histories Society, which provides volunteer coaches on the last Saturday of the month. The coaches are very well versed in all things genealogical and will give you one-on-one assistance with your project. This kind of assistance can be very helpful for those who are just getting started, those who have hit a brick wall or for anyone who needs a fresh perspective on their research. We meet at the Central Library on the 4th floor from 10:00am to noon. This is a drop-in program so you do not need to register in advance.
We have introduced a second genealogy program on the last Saturday of the month to make it a truly genealogical day. In the afternoon we are offering a Genealogy Meet-Up. Participants will be able to chat with other researchers and share information about methods, resources and other genealogical interests. This program will take place in the meeting room on the fourth floor of the Central Library from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. You will have to register for this one. This can be done in person at your local branch, by telephone at 403-260-2620 or online at www.calgarypubliclibrary.com (click on ‘Programs’ in the black bar at the top of the page, then search for ‘genealogy meet up’). If you’d like more information on either of these programs (or on any other matters genealogical or historical) you can contact us at 403-260-2785 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d love to see you at either or both of these programs. Come down for the day, there is a lot going on in and around the Central library on Saturdays and there are some really great eateries in the vicinity. Make it a day of genealogy. Hope to see you soon.
