Did you miss your local genealogical society meeting this month? Fountaindale Public Library’s October Genealogy Club meeting is live and available for free through November 11, 2019.
This month’s meeting features “Reading Between the Lines of the City Directory” with Teresa Steinkamp McMillin. City directories give us a peek into our ancestors’ lives. Learn how pictures, ads and maps from a city directory should be included in your research. A fantastic program which can help you utilize a city directory to its fullest potential.
Next Month – Jennifer Warner will present our final program of the year “Using Newspapers.com” on Wednesday, November 13 at 7 pm at the Fountaindale Public Library. You won’t want to miss this session!
