There are several opportunities coming up to hear the Dead Librarian speak from the grave!
July 24, 6:00 pm, I will be at the Southeast Library on Garners Ferry Road giving a presentation called Three Interesting Women. This program encourages family historians to leave the tree behind and focus on researching one or two people in their family tree for a more detailed story. I use my research as an example of using available SC resources to build a more complete story of someone's life.
August 16, 9:00-4:00, I will be at the Family History Day at the LDS Church 1330 Whipperwill Dr. West Columbia, 29169. I will speak twice that day but I don't know the times. The presentation will be:
The Local Scene - Learn more about South Carolina’s online and print historic
resources and the institutions that collect, preserve and make materials
accessible to family researchers.
September 6, 10:30, Bleckly Inn Anderson SC, the Anderson Chapter of the SC Genealogy Society is hosting the Dead Librarian's Top Ten Free Genealogy Sites presentation.
September 19, time not yet announced, Southern Studies Institute Edgefield, SC. Actually I am not sure what I am presenting at the SSI this year. It might be researching Historic Newspapers or the Top Ten free sites presentation. This is always a great workshop. Try to make it.
December 15, 11:00 Eastover Library. Beginning Genealogy. Look for more Beginning Genealogy classes at the Richland Library branches 2015.
Dec 6 - Don't forget about After the Burning: using reconstruction records at the Main Library with Toni Carrier from Low Country Africana. More information to the left under programming.
