HeritageQuest: What You Can Find At Home

On this day, we hope you'll plan to come to the library's Auditorium Saturday at 2:00 PM for Heritage Room Librarian Laura Carter's presentation on HeritageQuest, a genealogy and history database available through GALILEO. The presentation is co-sponsored by the Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society, and there will be an informal meet & greet in the Small Conference Room.

HeritageQuest has digitized images of U.S. Census, Revolutionary War, Freedman's Bank, and U.S. Serials documents; searchable, digital copies of books and family histories, and the Periodical Source Index (PERSI) with millions of citations from over 6,000 history and genealogy journals. It's a resource you don't want to skip in your research, and can be accessed for free from your home computer at any time.

For more information, call (706) 613-3650, ext. 350. Hope to see you there!
