Annual "Lock-In" at the Library

The annual "Lock-In" at the Main Branch of the Library will take place on Saturday, October 27th from 6:30 - 11:30 PM. This year, in addition to an opportunity to do personal research, members of the HCGS Tech Team will be presenting a Taste of Tech. In the Computer Lab adjacent to the Genealogy and History Department, participants will have the chance to explore up to five different tools that could be useful to genealogists.

Participants of the Lock-In can look over the schedule and decide if one or more of the topics is of interest to them. Those interested in presentations by Kathy Reed or Gail Burkholz will need to have a Google Account in advance should they want to try out these applications in the lab. You can create a Google Account by "googling" create a google account and following the directions. The page will look similar to the one pictured below.  Don't forget to confirm the email that is sent to you and make sure you remember your password.

The Library Friends' Shop is also staying open until 8PM during the Genealogy Lock-In. Buyers can get a 10% discount on the items they purchase.

Unfortunately, a check of the library's registration site shows that there already is a waiting list for this year's Lock-In. Should you be one of the forty who pre-registered, I look forward to seeing you there.
