Group Presentations and Tours
Would your group like a tour of the Genealogy Center or an overview at your next meeting of the available resources? Contact us and we can schedule a tour at the Genealogy Center or come to you with a half hour presentation about the many resources available at the Genealogy Center to support family history research.
Watch for these upcoming free Genealogy programs:
On Wednesday, December 11, join members of the Albuquerque Genealogical Society for their annual "Show and Tell." Members bring heirlooms or items of genealogical interest and tell of their history or special meaning. Attendees are encouraged to come in costumes of their native lands or in the clothing of their ancestor. Members are also invited to bring a holiday dish to share with the group. This is a great way to end the year. See the AGS website for more details: http://abqgen.swnet.com/ 10:30 am to noon, Main Library - Community Room - Lower Level.
The New Mexico Genealogical Society will not have a meeting in December.
There will not be a Research Day in December.
