The second program is on Oct. 20. “Starting Your Dutch Genealogy” will focus on Dutch genealogy of the community. Many residents of Ottawa County are descended from Dutch immigrants, so Weiden will outline the history of the Netherlands and its culture. She will also explore websites that contain Dutch records.
The final program on Oct. 27 is titled “Preserving Your Family Treasures.” Weiden said when one becomes the family genealogist, they also become the family historian. She poses the question: What does one do with it all? Weiden will present practical ways to store old photographs, grandmother’s wedding dress, the family Bible and other heirlooms.
All programs are free and will be held in the library’s Program Room A from 7-8:30 p.m. Registration is not required.
