“Using Government Documents in Family History Research”
Presented by Susan C. Field (U.S. Regional Depository Librarian, UGA Libraries) and Laura W. Carter (Heritage Room Librarian, Athens-Clarke County Library)
University of Georgia Main Library
This day long, hands on workshop is designed to help researchers learn about the many materials in Federal Depository Libraries that can help them find their ancestors. Most genealogical and family history researchers use a variety of government documents in their research, mainly those from the National Archives and Records Administration, but the focus of this will be on other government records. The program is sponsored by the University of Georgia Libraries, the Athens-Clarke County Library, Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society (COGS), and the East Georgia Genealogical Society (EGGS).
Pre-registration is required. Registration deadline is Wednesday September 27.
$15.00 ($12.00 for members of COGS or EGGS). Fee includes handouts, snacks and box lunch. Make checks payable to: Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society (COGS). Mail to: Mary H. Abbe, 150 Raintree Ct, Athens, GA 30607-2111
