Join us on Saturday, September 9th, at 9 am for the monthly Genealogy and Local History Orientation. Please note that this is not the usual first Saturday of the month due to the Labor Day holiday weekend. This event is especially helpful for those new to genealogical research or new to research at the Newberry. After the orientation, stay and start your research in the General Reading Room where the reference staff will be available to assist you. In order to maximize research time, please register in advance as a Newberry Reader. Go to: requests.newberry.org and select “First Time Users.” Readers’ cards will be issued during the orientation.
