In November, Stay Up Late at MGC

MGC Lock-In

October 2, 2019

Join us at the Midwest Genealogy Center on Friday, November 8, from 6:00 to 11:30 p.m. for our annual event—Lock-In: Late Night at MGC. Whether you are just getting started with your family history research, or you have been climbing your family tree for years, you won’t want to miss this event.

This year, dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. in the new Community Hall, followed by a special presentation on DNA testing by local genealogy expert Kathleen Brandt. Kathleen will discuss how DNA results and analysis can provide hints and answers to a plethora of brick wall cases. She will explore filling in collateral lines, building your DNA genetic network using DNA matches, and testing tools to leverage power and uncover answers to your ancestral brick walls.

From 8:00 to 11:30 p.m., MGC will be open exclusively for Lock-In participants. Guests can enjoy refreshments, network with other genealogists, and get in a few extra hours of research time. For those new to genealogy, we will offer library tours and classes such as Beginning Genealogy and Census Records Research. For the more seasoned genealogists, we will have a session on Resources for Organizing Your Genealogy and Brick Walls Breakout Session. During the breakout session, get together with others to share helpful information, network, and gather inspiration to help you continue your genealogy project.

To end the evening, there will be drawing for prizes such as World Explorer memberships to Ancestry.com, a one-year subscription to Fold3.com or Newspapers.com, an AncestryDNA kit, and more!

Registration is $15.50, and the deadline to register is November 4, 2019. Register at Eventbrite.com or by calling MGC at 816.252.7228.
