Birmingham Public Library Presents
Genealogical Treasures Workshop

BIRMINGHAM, AL --  The Birmingham Public Library will conduct a genealogical workshop on Saturday, June 8, 2002, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., in the Richard Arrington Auditorium of the Linn-Henley Research Library.

The workshop will be presented by the staff of the Tutwiler Collection of Southern History and Literature and will focus on such topics as using the Internet for research, using periodicals to find information on that “lost” ancestor, contemporary genealogical research and what can be found in public records.

The Genealogical Treasures Workshop is open to the public for a cost of $15 per person, including a boxed lunch or $10 per person without a lunch. Pre-registration is required and payment must be received by June 4, 2002. For more information, please call 205.226.3665
