Learn more about one of the best genealogy collections between Chicago and Salt Lake City by attending a program designed for anyone interested in genealogy. The Greater Omaha Genealogical Society (GOGS) and Omaha Public Library will host the 4th annual Genealogy Lock-In on Friday, Sept. 28, 6:30-9 p.m., W. Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St.
Library staff and GOGS members will be available to help participants open the doors to their family’s past by discovering genealogical treasures in the Library’s collection. Tours will be offered and refreshments will be served.
“Omaha Public Library has resources for everyone from serious genealogists to family tree hobbyists,” said Gary Wasdin, Omaha Public Library executive director. “This is a wonderful opportunity for those who want to pursue a link to their past, but maybe never knew how.”
Participants are encouraged to bring laptops and flash drives if desired, and a valid Omaha Public Library card. Those who are not residents of Douglas County should arrive before 6 p.m. to purchase a $2 guest pass if they plan to access Internet resources. Registration in advance is required, and space is limited! To register, visit omahalibrary.org or call 402.444.4826. For more information, visit gogsmembers.wordpress.com.
