Everyone who has spent summers in the South knows that July can be a scorcher when it comes to temperatures. The Southern History Department invites you to enjoy the cool air conditioning on the 1st floor of the Linn Henley building for our Introduction to Genealogy classes. We will teach this class on Tuesday, July 7th at 11:30 am and again on Sunday, July 19th at 2:30 pm. In this class, the staff from Southern History Department covers such topics as vital records, courthouse and church records, the Federal Census, and much more. Emerge from this class refreshed after spending an hour in air conditioning as well as having learned how to get started with genealogy.
We will also be teaching Introduction to Genealogy at Trussville Public Library on Thursday, July 9th at noon. Come in from the heat, bring your lunch, and enjoy the provided drinks and dessert while learning at the same time. For more information and to register, call the Trussville Public Library at 655-2022 ext 3. Is your calendar already full for these dates? We offer Introduction to Genealogy throughout the year, and you can check the schedule to see if there is a date that works for you.
Just a warning some people find the library rather chilly, so it is perfectly okay to bring a sweater, even though it is July and you could probably fry an egg on the sidewalk. Make the library your destination to beat the heat, and enjoy all the Summer Reading programs that we have for kids, teens, and adults.
