April 2012 Mentoring Sessions

We are trying something NEW this month in our Mentoring Program!

The Library Volunteers have graciously offered to provide Mentoring on various topics during their rotation on the Library schedule.  Because of this, we must insist that these Mentoring sessions truly be one-on-one events!  The Volunteer may have to help any visitors that arrive and in order not to dilute your education, having only one person to focus on for Mentoring is the best option.  So sign up early!!

What do I need to know before I move onto Irish records? How and where do I find the information I need? This workshop will be good for anyone researching Irish ancestors, even if they are just starting their research, as it will review how to find the records in this country that they need. For those who have been researching for a while, hopefully between us, we can find new ways of uncovering the elusive info!  Contact Joan for a reservation to this Mentoring session!
