On Friday, 13 September 2013, Hall County Public Library will host Sitting Up with the Dead beginning at noon. The library closes to the public at 5:00 p.m., and no one will be admitted to the program after 6:00 p.m. Researchers will have the opportunity to explore the Sybil Wood McRay Genealogy and Local History Collection all night long with library staff members and fellow researchers. Program details come with the warning that the event is not for beginners or the faint of heart. The cost is $12 per registrant, which includes a boxed dinner, beverages, and a snack. Registration forms are available on the Hall County Public Library web site. Fees and the registration form must be received by Monday, 9 September for all participants.
On Thursday, 19 September 2013 at 6:30 p.m., the Hall County Public Library will host Basic Building Blocks of Genealogy for “first time” genealogists. For more information, call (770) 532-3311 ext. 116.
