Genealogy Research Disaster Plan


Summer Genealogy Discussion Sessions


We are offering monthly round table discussion sessions on genealogy topics. These sessions meet on the second Monday of each month at the Mid-County Regional Library from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Plan to attend and keep your genealogy projects active throughout the summer.
No reservations are needed, just show up and bring your questions or problems to the group.
Who knows, someone may be able to offer some assistance or a suggestion that makes a big difference.
We will have available power strips  so you can plug in your laptops. Please contact Jim Maloney at maloneyj6@gmail.com if you can volunteer as an assistant for one of the dates below.

Tips & Tricks
To find a birth date from a death date, subtract the age in years, months and days from the date of death. This is a very close approximation.

Church records may include births, christenings, marriages, deaths and burials. Be sure you have the correct church/religious denomination. If you’re not sure, search the churches closest to home first and then broaden your search in ever-widening circles.

City Directories provide names and occupations of town residents and much local business information.
