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 two-day event by the Louisville Free Public Library will offer sessions that expand on previous Genealogy Day events to address these issues. Eight lecture tracks cover historical/genealogical society development, professional development for librarians and archivists, technology, basic genealogy for beginners, advanced genealogy, ethnic roots, Kentucky institutions and their collections, and Kentucky history.
Nationally recognized Kentucky historian Dr. John Kleber will be the keynote speaker.
Librarians and archivists are invited to meet for an informal networking lunch on that Saturday at The Brown Hotel, a short walk from the library.
