Our Heritage Room Librarian, Laura W. Carter, will provide you with tips and advice for the necessary sojourns to archives, libraries, and courthouses that are part of doing historical research. Starting with the most basic advice, that you know what information you are trying to find before you arrive, Ms. Carter will explain how to get the maximum benefit from your research trips, and how to phrase questions in a way that enable librarians and archivists to help you.
The seminar is free and open to the public, jointly sponsored by the Athens-Clarke County Heritage Room and the Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society. No registration is required, and there will be a meet & greet with refreshments in the Small Conference Room next to the Auditorium.
For more information, call (706) 613-3650, ext. 350 or email the Heritage Room. We hope to see you there for this informative and helpful presentation!
