If you could be locked in a library, what kind of library would it be? A genealogy library, of course! October is Family History Month, so a late night lock-in is the perfect time to get started on your family history research or to find that long-lost elusive ancestor. Join us at the Midwest Genealogy Center on Friday, October 12, from 8 p.m. until midnight for our Lock-In.
The Library closes at 8:00 p.m. that evening, and then you can stay up late for a night of research, mini classes, and fun. The event is free, but registration is required. Use the extra hours to dig deeper into your family history. Stay fueled with snacks and drinks provided by the Library. Enter to win some great prizes such as a rolling scrapbook tote, Family Tree Maker software, an AncestryDNA kit, and more!
If you are a beginner, come a little early and take the Beginning Genealogy class from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Throughout the evening, genealogists from beginner to advanced can attend any of the Geni Jiffy mini classes offered throughout the evening. No need to register for the classes that evening, just come to the Community Room. What’s My Line? will focus on lineage societies; Exploring City Directories will give you some new ideas about a great genealogical resource; and Access to the Max will show you everything genealogy-related that your amazing Access Pass (Library card) can do.
If you do not have a Library card, you can sign up online or in the Library that evening. We will have extra computers available during the Lock-In, but you may want to bring your own laptop along.
Fulfill your dream of being locked in a genealogy library, and bring along some friends to join in the fun!
