Genealogy Speaker Series

Our Genealogy Speaker Series is a free monthly program that takes place on the last Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. EST. The Series runs from January through October and each month features a different guest speaker who will present on a unique genealogy-related topic.

The programs will be held virtually through Zoom, so you can participate from the safety and comfort of your own home. Registration is required, so if you are interested, contact the library or email Preston Petermeier.
