Get Ready for Genealogy Day this Saturday May 3, 2014! – Wisdom Wednesday

Genealogy Day Graphic 2014Genealogy Day is this Saturday, and I hope you all are excited about spending the day with the Fountaindale Public Library!  Genealogy Day registration begins at 9 am, with the program commencing at 9:30 am.  Here’s a quick checklist of what you will need for Saturday, May 3, 2014:

Bring or Order your lunch – If you forget your lunch on the day of our program, you can place a lunch order at Brooks Cafe during morning registration.  Some food selections may be limited, so you’ll want to place your order before 9:30 am!

Bring a seat cushion -  You will be sitting for extended periods of time, so a little padding is advisable.  If you want to make a few new friends, bring extra seat cushions.

Clip Board - Due to space constraints, we will have audience style seating in the room.  We recommend bringing a clip board for writing copious notes.

Two Photos - Regardless of registration for photo consultation, we have some awesome scanning equipment available for you to use!  If you need help on an item, Anna from Studio 300 is offering digital photo restoration services as time allows.

Flash drive - Great for saving your new digital images from our scanning equipment.  In a pinch, we will have a few flash drives available, or you can purchase a snazzy Fountaindale Public Library flash drive from Anna for $8 during Genealogy Day.
