Upcoming Genealogy Programs At The Arlington Heights Memorial Library During March/April 2012

Hi Everyone!

I received a notice from Michael Mulholland, the Genealogy Librarian at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, that the library will be having some more genealogy programs in the near future.  The programs will require pre-registration with the library.

You can visit the Arlington Heights Memorial Library website’s Genealogy Page at:

I wanted to share with all of you what those programs are and when they will occur.

Take a look at the text that follows in Italics after the line separator for all of the upcoming genealogy programs that will take place at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library in the near future.
