Genealogy Club to meet Saturday

April 10, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

Janet Isner, manager of Allegheny Regional Family History Society library of Elkins, will be the featured speaker at Belington Public Library's Saturday Morning Genealogy Club this weekend.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, and it is open to the public.

BPL's genealogical collection and computers will be available to the public that day from 9 a.m. to noon. The library offers free access to AncestryLibrary.com and HeritageQuest.com. Library patrons also can access HeritageQuest.com from their home computers with a special Web address and a valid BPL library card. These websites are courtesy of a WV Community Participation Project Grant from Delegate Mary Poling and Sen. Bob Williams.

Isner will report on the resources available at the ARFHS library and how to use those materials. The ARFHS library has an extensive collection of interest to genealogists and will have some publications available for purchase that day.

The ARFHS library is located in the IOOF Lodge Building along U.S. 219 and 250, about 3 miles south of Elkins and across from the Elkins Regional Convalescent Center. The library is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Belington Public Library is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday; noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday.
