Drop-in Genealogy
at the
Holyoke Public Library
4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
June 20  &  27
Computer Classroom

 
Last chance to jumpstart your summer family history research by consulting with professional genealogist Hillary Schau at these free drop-in sessions. 
Hillary can help you:
  • Decide if, when, why, and how to pursue DNA testing.
  • Identify exactly where your summer research trip should take you:  Are those records at a town hall?  county courthouse? or state archives?  Hillary can help you find answers to these questions and avoid disappointing side-trips.
  • Dig deeper into the ever-changing world of online research.
  • Organize, organize, organize (and back up!)--especially important if you plan to take your research notes on the road. 
Hillary will NOT be holding these sessions during the remaining summer months, so, if you want to get her advice, be sure to come on June 20 or 27 (or both!).

A Zoo On the Go Program is an educational outreach program that brings live animals, artifacts, and other educational materials to schools, day care centers, hospitals, retirement centers, camps, and other locations. This innovative program features a variety of animal ambassadors and artifacts.

Zoo On The Go Presentations are designed to provide information about the animals, their special adaptations, habitats, behavior, diets, and status in the wild. Sessions provide an opportunity for students to touch and observe the animals, as well as ask individual questions. Special topics can also be arranged to correspond with classroom projects.
