Academic Libraries

Finding Treasures in Academic Libraries

You may think that academic libraries will not hold genealogical information for you. You are in for a surprise! We will review holdings in three academic institutions, — their general collections, special collections and archives. Topical research will be covered. Discover how to find the right institution, how to use their catalog, how to prepare for your visit and once there, how to research most efficiently. Even if your ancestor was not a student, or on faculty or staff, records pertaining to your ancestor may be there.
