Many researchers at one time or another finds themselves wishing to be locked in the library at night to continue their research. A unique opportunity awaits the genealogy/local history researcher during a fundraiser being planned for the Fenton History Center's Research Center at the Hall House.
On Saturday, Jan. 11, the Research Center will hold a Library Lock-In. From 1 p.m. to midnight, the research center will be open to members and non-members of the Fenton History Center to research and get help from other researchers while learning about other available resources.
The event will feature mini sessions about available databases and other resources, door prizes, food and fun. The volunteers and staff have experience in U.S. research with focus on the New England region and Middle Atlantic States. They also have expertise and resources for researching Swedish, Italian, Scottish, English and Irish records. Anyone working on a local history or genealogy project are encouraged to attend. Beginning researchers are welcome. Space is limited. Please register early. The cost is $30 per person.
New York state Sen. Catharine Young speaks at the Hall House grand opening in May.
Memberships are available at the event. Visit www.fentonhistorycenter.org or call 664-6256 for more information and to register.
