PROGRAM:    Keeping Your Research Off The Curb

SPEAKER:     George Perkins, Archivist, Stevenson-Ives Library


Have you made plans for the destination of your genealogical research documents when you are gone?  Mr. Perkins will suggest ways to keep your research safe and give you peace of mind, knowing all of your hard work will not end up on the curb.


Mr. Perkins is Archivist of our Stevenson-Ives Library and an Instructor at Heartland Community College where he teaches Beginning Genealogy. He and his wife Pat have attended hundreds of national, state and regional conferences, and seminars, and researched at libraries across the U.S. They are well acquainted with topics of interest in the field of genealogical research. Come and learn!


In case of severe weather, this meeting will be canceled.
