The Society’s regular monthly meeting
will be held on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012 at 7:00 PM
in the Auditorium of the Main Public Library,
660 W. 5th St., in Winston-Salem, NC
Please join us on Tuesday, January 3rd at 6:30 PM for refreshments. The program starts at 7:00 PM. The meeting is free and open to the public.
To begin the New Year of 2012, the North Carolina Room staff of the Forsyth County Public Library will give us an in-depth tour of the Forsyth County Public Library’s North Carolina Room. First we will gather as usual in the Auditorium of the library, and after a very brief business meeting we will walk to the NC Room as a group.
We will learn or be refreshed in memory about the many genealogical resources and tools that are available in the NC Room, where to find them, and how to use the equipment to best advantage. Did you know that there is A QUICK GUIDE TO CALL NUMBERS IN THE NC ROOM, related to Genealogy, available at the desk? The list gives the call numbers for states, counties, individual surnames, multiple surnames, and a separate page of call numbers for general North Carolina history materials.
To prepare for this tour you are encouraged to go online to https://northcarolinaroom.wordpress.com/the-collection/genealogy/ and read the overview of the Genealogy Collection in the NC Room. Don’t forget that the NC Room also has a Digitization Center for VHS, audio cassettes, slides, photographs, documents.
As we have done in the past, our FCGSociety furnishes volunteers in the NC Room on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month from 10-1 pm to assist genealogical researchers in their quests; consider joining the team.
Many, many thanks to the NC Room staff for providing us such an exciting and helpful program to begin 2012!
