In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day 2016, Professor Bill Walker, former university librarian at the University of Miami and the New York Public Library’s Andrew W. Mellon Director Emeritus of the Research Libraries, invites you to join him on his travels to unlock his Irish ancestors’ pasts.
Travel with Bill as he visits cemeteries and courthouses, small-town historical societies and public libraries, and the villages and streets where these early nineteenth-century settlers lived. This adventure delves into the lives of his great grandmothers, Harriet Bogle and Jane McCullough, two very determined and rugged pioneer women. Using his own work as an example, Walker sheds light on the rewarding process of genealogical research using a variety of resources. In addition to making use of online information, Bill Walker is a strong advocate for stepping away from the computer and taking to the road.
Please join us for a festive reception and genealogy presentation.
