You’re invited: Wednesday’s Website Wonders

You’re invited: Wednesday’s Website Wonders

April 24, 2020

Cabin fever? Check. Feeling the “distancing” but wondering what became of the “social” part? Check. During these extraordinary times, members of the Midwest Genealogy Center staff truly miss having the opportunity to meet with you and offer our assistance with your family research; trust that you are never far from our thoughts! 

To that end, we’d like to invite you to join us online each Wednesday for a new, six-week virtual series entitled, “Wednesday’s Website Wonders,” which will introduce you to some of the lesser-known features of the MGC website that might just extend your home-research capabilities as we all await the opportunity to reconnect in person.

Each week’s presentation will highlight a different aspect of the MGC website that can be accessed at no charge by anyone with an active Mid-Continent Public Library Access Pass (Library card). This week, we kicked off the program with the “wonders” found on the MGC homepage.

So, if you’ve been looking for new and exciting ways to expand your genealogical research, make plans to join us each week on the MGC Online Learning page for a new edition of Wednesday’s Website Wonders!
