Britney Hord to Speak at PGS Monthly Meeting on 21 September

Britney Hord, Library Services Coordinator at our very own Largo Public Library, will be the featured speaker at the 21 September meeting. Her topic will be "How to Use 'The Rest' of Largo Library for Your Genealogy Research."

We often get so focused on the references in the Genealogy Center that we forget about all of the other sources of genealogical importance located elsewhere in the library. It is those sources that Britney will talk abut. This topic was inspired by our seminar speaker last February, Sharon DeBartolo Carmack. Her presentation titled "Flesh on the Bones: Putting Your Ancestor into Historical Perspective" touched on the value of the library's general collection. The topic was well-received and prompted us to expand it with Britney's help.

The monthly meeting is free and open to the public. It is held in the Jenkins Room of the Largo Public Library and starts at 11 am. There is an open Q&A period about computers in genealogy that precedes the meeting. It begins at 10 am.
