Opportunities Are Endless (and Free) at MGC
May 04, 2012
At least once a week, a new Library customer comes into the Genealogy Center and asks about how to begin their family genealogy research. They may have been inspired by the latest TV episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, or maybe, their child has a school assignment asking them to begin researching where they came from. Regardless of their mission, after getting an introductory tutorial of how to get started, the next question always amazes me. "How much do you charge?"
Just like the other branches of the MCPL, the Midwest Genealogy Center provides all their resources to the public at no charge. This includes access to our online databases, all Library references (maps, books, and periodicals), staff assistance when conducting research, and classes covering genealogy research and history. Online access simply requires a current MCPL card. So, now that you know that the resources at the Genealogy Center are free, it’s time to plan your visit to our world-renowned library. Let the researching begin!
