Boston Public Library will be the highlight of March meeting

Despite the wintery weather we are experiencing, spring will be here in just a few short weeks. As it comes closer, plans will be made for our Spring Research Trip to Boston - New England Historic Genealogical Society and the Boston Public Library. If you have not taken advantage of this opportunity to visit the Library because you don't know what is there, nor how to find it, our March meeting will be just what you need!

Alice KaneOn Wednesday, March 18, at our regular monthly meeting, Alice Kane will be  our guest speaker and will tell us about "Exploring the Boston Public Library." She will give us the information we need to help us use this facility for our research.

Alice currently works at NEHGS in the microtext and digital collections on the 4th floor, so you may recognize her. Before working there, she was a librarian at Boston Public Library for 19 years and still uses the facility for research purposes. -- a perfect person to share her knowledge of the Library. Since the library has been undergoing renovations, she will be able to give us up-to-the-minute information for navigating collections of interest.

Alice has a Bachelors degree in history from Harvard University. She has extensive experience in researching French-Canadian, Irish, and German family history, so should be able to answer questions about collections available to help you in these areas.

You have the day, Wednesday, March 18, the time will be 10 AM, and the place will be the Brewster Ladies Library... all we need now is for the weather to cooperate!!
