African American Research Workshop - Instructor, Genealogist Alvis Ward Jr. - This is an ongoing free hands-on research workshop comprised of African Americans, also referred to as Black or Afro-American, or those who harmonize with Sub-Saharan Africa, with ancestry, citizenship, or residency in the United States. The workshop is an interactive exchange of research tools, methods and systems, and discussions necessary for progress at individual levels of family histories and genealogies impacted by the 16th Century removal of Africans to America as slaves. No pre-registration is required. For additional information E-Mail:

Family History Workshop : Write Your History in Stories.- Instructor, Kim Miller, staff genealogist - Does writing your personal history sound intimidating? Does "I was born ..." seem like a boring way to start?  How about writing your memories one story at a time?  Come once or come monthly, come when you can.  Set aside the 2nd Thursday of each month and spend an afternoon jump starting your memory.  Write one story each time you come, and you could greet 2018 with 11 stories for your personal history. 

Swedish Research Workshop - Need some help with your Swedish research? Join our experts (Beryl and Wade Olofson) on Thursdays between 10A and 4P for some individual assistance. No appointment necessary.
