TIARA Meeting – Sept. 2019
September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The BPL is home to many collections and resources that can be useful to amateur genealogists and family historians. These resources are for all skill levels, whether you’re just starting out, or have been at it long enough to become an expert. Come to hear what this means as we look at traditional resources as well as databases and digital offerings, including the acclaimed newspaper collections and the maps of the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center available from home 24/7 with your BPL card.
