Are you ready to research, scan family photos, explore Heritage Room resources, ask questions, and chat with others that share your passion for genealogy?! We are co-sponsoring a genealogy research lock-in taking place Friday, October 27, 2017 in the Heritage Room at the Athens-Clarke County Library.
The Athens-Clarke County Library closes at 6:00 pm, but Night Owl Prowl participants can stay until 11:00 pm! This year in addition to access to the amazing genealogy resources of the Heritage Room (print, microform, and digital), thanks to Head of Archives and Special Collections, Rikki Chesley, Heritage Room staff will man three flatbed scanners to help participants scan family photos or slides, as well as provide technical assistance! When registering for the event, you will need to let us know if you want to be included in the scanning schedule and approximately how many photos and/or slides you will be bringing. On the night of the event you will need to bring your family photos and/or slides and your own USB drive. (USB drives are usually available wherever computer and office supplies are sold.) Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society volunteers will also be available to assist with your genealogy research questions.
The registration deadline is Tuesday, October 24. You may register online, by mail, or in the Heritage Room. Follow the link to register online or to download a registration form http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gacogs/learn/nightowl.html. Your registration fee of $10 for members and $15 for guests helps pay for security, a light supper, and snacks.
Don't like to stay up late? No problem, you are free to leave at any time! The Heritage Room regular Friday hours are 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, so you can come as early as 9:00 am and stay until 11:00 pm!
We hope you will join us for this fun and productive genealogy event taking place after hours at the library! Feel free to bring a friend and share this information widely!
