Where did I come from?
with Peter and Betty Garland
Monday, August 8 at 7 pm
Back by popular demand! Peter and Betty Garland have been co-directors of the Family History Center in Lebanon for nearly ten years and have been working on genealogy research for over thirty years. They will discuss the free Family Search website, how to enroll, and how to begin your own family tree. Included will be information on research hints, overcoming “stone walls,” and uploading family photos and documents to your tree. They also will provide tips on what’s available and how to use the library, Internet, town, and collaborative resources. If you have the detective spirit, are a history buff, or just want to know where you came from, then this is an event you don’t want to miss. A warning though … family history can be addictive!
Library Value Calculator — How much does Dunbar Free Library save you?
If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (link on the left). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other NH libraries. Note that it WILL tell you about UNH, but it WON’T tell you what Dartmouth has. If you can’t find it, send us an e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
