Holyoke Public Library Event Calendar

|Title:||Genealogy Drop-in Lab|
|Contact:||Eileen Crosby, (413) 420-8107|
|Location:||Computer Classroom - Third Floor|
On the last two Wednesdays of every month (February – June 2018), we will hold a free drop-in lab open to family historians at all stages of the research process. If you are new to genealogy, or exploring new and unfamiliar research avenues, the lab offers a chance to ask questions and get some one-on-one assistance. If you are a more advanced researcher, come to enjoy the company of fellow family historians and share your experience!
No pre-registration necessary, but you will need a Library Card to access Lab computers. You may also bring your own computer and use our free Wi-Fi and databases.
Genealogy lab patrons will be assisted by Hillary Schau, a professional genealogist from Western Mass with long experience assisting others with their family history research.
Drop-in Lab Dates: February 21 & 28; March 21 & 28; April 18 & 25; May 23 & 30; June 20 & 27.
The Holyoke History Room will be open until 6 PM on Genealogy Lab days. The History Room has many sources not accessible online, including Holyoke Transcript newspaper obituaries, Holyoke High School Yearbooks, selected church repertoires, and more.
