Autumn is the right time to locate the cold weather gear, check the insulation, dust off the bookshelves and focus on family.
The Family History Fair, Saturday, October 23, at Minneapolis Central Library opens up the possibilities to explore the roots and stories that are the family history. It’s a chance to browse ethnic and special interest groups, to connect with genealogy experts, to learn how to start a family history and to discover the exceptional resources of the library.
And they are truly exceptional – for a quick peek at just some of the library’s treasures check the special collections page on the online catalog.
The Fair will run 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Pohlad Hall, top of the escalator at the Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall. The event is sponsored by the Library Foundation of Hennepin County in partnership with the Minnesota Genealogical Society.
