Library helps with genealogy research

If you are doing or planning to do genealogical research, you will want to note two upcoming Fauquier County Public Library programs.

The first is a demonstration of one of the library’s free online services, Heritage Quest Online, at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, in the John Barton Payne Building. Registration is not required for the free demonstration. Reference Librarian Mary Sue Marsh will be on hand to answer questions.

If you are a beginning genealogist, or have gotten stuck doing your research, a genealogy one-on-one is definitely something you should sign up for. Individual sessions, beginning in September and continuing through November, are being scheduled now. The 45-minute sessions will be held between 1 to 2:30 p.m. on selected Tuesdays. Only 12 slots are available, so call (540) 347-8750, ext. 6, or e-mail Mary Sue Marsh soon to reserve a spot.

The Warrenton Library also hosts free genealogy research marathons each fall and spring. Librarians and experienced researchers are on hand throughout the marathons to help genealogists and would-be genealogists. Call (540) 347-8750, ext. 6, or e-mail Vicky Ginther for marathon details.
