Each month the WMGS offers a public program at 1:30 pm in Ryerson Auditorium of the Grand Rapids Public Library. This Saturday, on December 1
, Julie Tabberer will present
Bringing Your Ancestors to Life with Archival Resources
GGRWHC board member and manager of the GRPL archives, Julie Tabberer will offer tips and guidelines for using archival records in your genealogical research. Discover how to go beyond basic facts and dates with archival collections and learn more about who your ancestors were—or other persons of interest. The GGRWHC can recommend some great women subjects about whom we would like to know more!
Using the library’s archives, Julie will illustrate how to think creatively and find primary sources that may contain unexpected information. Archives hold unique and rich material that can be particularly helpful for researching women and people of color. This program is co-sponsored by the Western Michigan Genealogical Society.
