The Genealogy Department is presenting a special program in February! Researching the Forbidden!

This event will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014  –  10:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the Florentine Room.

Terri O’Connell will present Researching the Forbidden. We all have family secrets. Stories that are whispered to a select few and hidden from the rest. Some secrets go with our ancestors to the grave while others are eventually exposed. Why do we feel the need to hold these family secrets? What can we learn about our past that will help us in the present and the generations to come? What records are available and what can you learn to sort out these family secrets? In this lecture learn what the records can tell you, even if you were not looking for it.

There is a $10 fee for this program.
