JGS-GREATER MIAMI IS GOING ON A FIELD TRIP TO PUBLIC LIBRARY

By: Joan Parker


After a three-year "hiatus" the JGS of Greater Miami will be meeting with the
genealogist librarian on Sunday, March 1, 2009 at the:
 
Main Library 
101 W. Flagler Street Miami, FL
Phone: 305-375-2665 
(Click here for a map or call the number above for directions.)

PLEASE NOTE THE TIME:  
12:45PM to meet on the patio to enter the library at 1PM
when doors open. Library closes at 5PM on Sundays.

Please be aware that although the library is here in Miami, the collections are not limited to the southern states but has all the US census microfilms and City Directories and many newspapers.  
Attendees will have access to the librarian after the 20-30 minute introduction on the collections, All six computers in the genealogy department are reserved for us and attendees can bring their own laptops,thumb drives and their own wireless cards. The genealogy section has three readers which can print and save, and two for reading only, but there are other readers in other parts of the library. 
Also, there are other computers throughout the library as well. While there  we will have access to Ancestry.com. HeritageQuest and other sites that can only be accessed from the library, not from home.
If, like our JGS members you have not checked out the library for a while,this is a great opportunity to do so. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you will find there.
