Minot Public Library to Offer Genealogy Program October 5 | News, Sports, Jobs
One topic that is still popular at the Minot Public Library is genealogy, according to information provided by Joshua Pikka, technology coordinator. People of all ages come to the library to research their ancestors on Ancestry Library Edition, or to search microfilm archives for obituaries. On October 5, at 6 p.m., two library staff will host a program that will help genealogical researchers use technology to beautify their family trees.
“Getting your information is sometimes the funniest part of genealogical research” Information specialist Debbie Chappo said. Chappo will showcase databases like Ancestry Library Edition and other means by which researchers can gather their genealogical information using technology.
“Technology has had a big impact on the way people do their genealogy research,” Pikka said. “Once you have your family information, there are many ways you can use technology to display your information. “ Pikka will demonstrate how to use the technology offered by the library to enhance your family tree, such as its poster printer, image editing software, and more.
Everyone is invited to the library for this free event. People can call the library at 852-1045 for more information.
