The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) has opened a new exhibition, Chartering Freedom. The documents reproduced in this exhibition chronicle the creation of the Charters of Freedom: the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and their impact on events in this country and around the world. They reveal the story of earlier generations of Americans who had both the vision to see a better world and the audacity to build it. The exhibit runs through Friday, 17 March 2017.

Kentucky History and Genealogy Conference  (Conferences & Seminars)
Louisville Free Public Library, 301 York Street, Louisville, Ky.
How can historians and genealogists expand their own research? How can historical or genealogical libraries and societies boost programs, raise funds, or increase membership? This first-ever event by the Louisville Free Public Library will offer sessions that expand on previous Genealogy Day events  to address these issues. The library's Joe Hardesty says it will be "a win-win for all who participate."
 
Nationally recognized Kentucky historian Dr. John Kleber will be the keynote speaker.  The proposed topic tracks:
  1. Historical and Genealogy Society Development –  for society officers, board members, and volunteers
  2. Continuing Education for Librarians and Archivists
  3. Technology – Sessions about the gadgets and apps used by researchers
  4. Basic Genealogy – Strategies and "how to" tips for those just starting their research
  5. Advanced Genealogy – DNA, WorldCat, and other topics for more experienced researchers
  6. Ethnic Roots – Research our Irish, Scottish, English, German, and African ancestors
  7. Institution Spotlight – The collection strengths and overlooked gems found in libraries and archives throughout Kentucky
  8. Kentucky History
 
A complete agenda and online registration are planned for launch in February. For details now: hardesty@lfpl.org or 502-574-1617.
