    Ancestry is an amazing resource which the Maine State Library provides for library patrons. However, it can be confusing to use. Learn how it works differently than other databases you use and how to help patrons get the most from using it.

    Join the Genealogy Interest Group on Monday, February 27, from 5:00 to 6:00 P.M. and take a tour of this invaluable genealogical research database. This event will be hosted by  B.J. Jamieson, genealogy specialist at the Maine State Library.

    The Zoom link to the meeting will be provided in your registration confirmation email.
