Don't Miss An Evening with Your Ancestors!

On this day, we'd like to tell you about our program, An Evening with Your Ancestors, on Friday, July 15th, from 6:00 pm until 10:30 pm, here at the Athens-Clarke County Library. 

We will be offering a special opportunity to have the 2nd floor of the building to ourselves to do a little extra research, enjoy dinner and conversation, see the plans for the renovated Heritage Room, and learn about the online resources available to further your genealogy study.

Just because the Heritage Room itself will be temporarily closed for renovation, doesn't mean you have to put your research on hold. Our goal is to show you how much you can still accomplish even while the Heritage Room and library are being expanded, in a fun, friendly atmosphere. 

Heritage Room librarians will offer classes about online books and database resources that you can access from home, such as Footnote and HeritageQuest, with plenty of time for questions and answers. You can also skip the classes and just take the time to do some extra research and socialize with others in the genealogy research community. It's going to be an informative and enjoyable evening that you don't want to miss!

An Evening with Your Ancestors is free, but pre-registration by the time Heritage Room closes at 6pm on Thursday, July 14th, 2011, is required. To register, call (706) 613-3650, ext. 350, or email the Heritage Room ( with your name, phone number, and email address. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Athens-Clarke County Heritage Room, the Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society, and the Friends of the Athens-Clarke County Library

We can't wait to see you here!
