Genealogy Research Workshops
Thursdays February 16th and 23rd and March 2nd at 6:30pm
Dave Robison of Old Bones Genealogy will be hosting a four-part workshop entitled "Genealogy Research - It's More Than Just a Website" here at the Granby Free Public Library Thursdays, February 16th and 23rd and March 2nd at 6:30pm.
From beginners to experienced family researchers, we all fall into ruts and we all run into “brick walls” in our research. Frustrating, isn’t it? “It’s More Than Just a Website” will pull you out of those ruts, get you to review the research you’ve already completed, and deep dive to see what may have been missed, overlooked or misinterpreted. Keeping in mind that it’s not all on the internet, you’ll discover many resources that may surprise you. Participants will be given access to dozens of website lists, documents, and other tools that you’ll be able to download and save to your own computer. The goal is to revive the research and help you look from a different perspective. It’s a very rewarding process!
Saturday, March 4th at 11amThe Granby Library Knitting Group is hosting its second annual free yarn swap for Yarn, Needles, Patterns, Knitting Tools & Ideas. Clean out your stash while enhancing another’s (or to make room for some new yarn)! Gather and share ideas for some terrific new projects!
Meet knitters who share your interest or who can help you learn new techniques!
We are asking all participants to bring a favorite one skein pattern with the appropriate yarn to share as a grab bag swap.
All are welcome to take materials whether they have some to donate or not. Items that aren’t adopted will go back home with the donor. Bring a bag! Bring your friends!
