Purcell Public Library
Genealogy research has become a different world in the last 10 to 15 years, as the growth of resources online has totally changed the way information on family history can be gathered.
Kathryn Ramsay, the Pioneer Library System’s Local History and Genealogy Resources Librarian, will give Summer Reading Programs a chance to “Try Something Different in Your Genealogy Research” at a program in hometown libraries this summer. She visits the Purcell Public Library at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 22.
A big part of her focus on the program is helping participants finding ways to communicate effectively with other researchers, both in searching for other blogs or message boards and in posting their own information in places it can help someone else.
“There is a lot of good information out there in terms of comparing and confirming information,” Ramsay said. “There is such an importance in collaboration and sharing.”
