Looking for a Local Library Lock-In?

We added several Library Genealogy Lock-Ins this past weekend!  You can always easily check upcoming genealogy events specific to your location page (Narrow down to your state under the LOCATIONS tab) or from the CALENDAR page, just type in a keyword, like  lock-in , in the Search box at the top left of the Calendar, and Voila! All of the upcoming lock-ins will show up.


I like to switch to the Agenda or Pinboard view (Options are on the top right of the calendar) to see results like these!  Try it out, and let us know if we’ve missed any that you know of!

Here are just a few flyers for some upcoming Library Lock-Ins:

WHEN:  Saturday, September 23, 2018

For those unable to attend the conference live, replays of the presentations and panel discussion will be available until October 23rd, 2017. The chat features will not be accessible on the replay.

After these four hours of instructions, the speakers will convene for a final panel discussion to answer your questions LIVE! It will be a great day of education and entertainment.

Support Local Societies AND Hurricane Harvey Relief:

25% of each ticket sold is given to The Humble Area Genealogical Society (THAGS), a local organization in Texas, to further its mission.  Support their fundraiser and learn great research tips in the process! Additionally, a part of the proceeds will be donated directly to THAGS members who suffered devastating losses in the recent hurricane.
