Family History Fair at Minneapolis Central Library


Frequently I have extolled the virtues and tried to described the sheer delight of working in Special Collections at Minneapolis Central Library.  If you haven’t had the time or the inclination, think about participating in the Family History Fair next Saturday, October 22, 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  The free and open Fair is will be in Pohlad Hall, second floor of the Central Library at 300 Nicollet Mall.

Participants will have an opportunity browse special interest and ethnic tables, to connect with genealogy experts, learn how to embark on a family history project, and to participate in a broad range of information sessions including gathering family stories, finding ancestors in other countries and discovering family history in your attic or around the dinner table.  There will also be an opportunity tour the Genealogy Resources of Minneapolis Central Library.
