Program Details


Topic: University Library Special Collections and University Archives

Speakers: Megan Klein-Hewett, Ames Public Library & Lorrie Pellack, Iowa State University Library

Each monthly Genealogy PLUS event features an hour-long presentation by an expert followed by a study session.

This session will share tips and tricks to help you prepare before your visit to a library, archive or special collection, whether it's online or in person. Learn about many of the unique genealogy resources found in the University Library Special Collections and University Archives— including many digital resources—and learn methods to find valuable records to search before your next visit.

We will hold this year’s series online using Zoom. To receive the link to join a presentation, register using the form below.
