Traveling through Time:  Ball State University Libraries’ Genealogy Class

The Community Center for Vital Aging (CCVA) is sponsoring a genealogy workshop at Ball State University Libraries’ Archives and Special Collection and GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) on Monday, November 19 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on the second floor of Bracken Library.

Bethany Fiechter, from the Archives, and Melissa Gentry, from the GRMC, will be available to assist with researching materials for family history.  Participants will be able to review collections from the Digital Media Repository, historic records, historic atlases and maps, and many other resources during the workshop.  Participants are encouraged to bring genealogy materials to the Library.

Free parking will be available in the Emens Parking Garage, east of Bracken Library, at 7:00 p.m.  A CCVA staff member will meet at the garage and escort the group to the library.
