Just wanted to let you know that the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) will be having a special program at our library on Saturday, April 22, 2017 starting at 10:30 AM that is connected to the group having an upcoming “road trip” to the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, IN.
The program is open to all, those that will be taking the road trip as well as those that may just want to learn more about the Allen County Public Library that will not be making the trip.
The title of the program is “Getting the Most Out of the Allen County Public Library Road Trip”. Speaker for the program is Sandra Trapp, a member of the CAGGNI organization.
The “road trip” itself will take place from June 15, 2017 to June 17, 2017. See the link below to the CAGGNI website for details about this trip.
Program description is:
Allen County Public Library is the 2nd largest genealogical library in the U.S. and has a multitude of research resources for both the U.S. and some other countries. The Program will include a review of what the Genealogy Center has to offer and how to prepare for your visit so you can make the most of your research time.
Even if you are not joining the Road Trip, but want to learn more about the resources at Allen County, do join us for the workshop.
