A Trip to the Hub Genealogical Resources at BPL

The first presentation in our 4 part genealogy series was a great success.  Almost 50 people filled the Couper Room at the Reuben Hoar Library to listen to an informative and lively Introduction to Genealogy by Peter Barbella.   Peter's insights into the challenges of genealogy were useful to both beginners and veterans.

Join us for more fun on February 7 (snow date February 14) for a talk by Henry F. Scannell who is the Curator of Microtext and Newspapers at the Boston Public Library.   The BPL is one of the oldest and largest libraries in the country and offers many resources to genealogical researchers: databases, newspapers, indexes, directories and other source materials.   Maybe you'll find a way to break down that Brick Wall!
