Upcoming Events

Capital Area District Libraries-South Lansing Branch (CADL) will be hosting the annual CADL Family History Open House from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 10th, to celebrate National Genealogy Day. The Open House will include four fantastic presentations this year.

10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

*Bring Your Family Tree to Life with Family Stories by Laura Hedgecock

*Using the Newspaper Collection at the Library of Michigan by Tim Gleisner

11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m.

*Using DNA Testing to Research Your Family History: A DNA Panel

*Becoming American: Research with Naturalization Records by Kris Rzepczynski

New to the Open House this year will be a Lunch & Learn session where attendees are invited to bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy two fun, short presentations by CADL Librarians, Heidi Butler and Anne Rau. After the Lunch & Learn, local area genealogical societies and CADL librarians will be hosting roundtables where attendees can participate in engaging conversations about popular family history topics.

Returning this year will be the popular open computer research time where participants can use Ancestry.com for free to find new information about their ancestors.

Please considering sharing the attached flyer and social media & Facebook friendly JPEG file with your membership or patrons. We appreciate any help you may provide in helping spread the word about this fun and informative event.

I also invite you to send CADL-South Lansing brochures or information about your group. This information will be made available to all who attend the Open House in an effort to inform the community of the many genealogical groups and resources in the Greater Lansing Area.
