Annual Lock-In at the Library A Great Success

2013 Annual Lock-In at PLCH

More than 40 HCGS members and PLCH librarians had the opportunity to dig into their genealogical research at the library last Saturday evening. The library opens its departments to researchers after hours once-a-year. It is a genealogist's dream to be able to search through the books, make use of the computers and get personal advice from a staff of dedicated librarians who have knowledge of what the library has to offer, surrounded by others who share a passion for genealogy.

For the past two years, the HCGS Technology Program Committee has also offered short sessions on some of the latest technology that is available to genealogists. This year there were sessions on how to take advantage of familysearch, social media, dropbox and google books. Participants also had the chance to preview the new HCGS website that will be introduced on November 1st.

If you've never attended one of these events, you are missing out on a great opportunity to meet other HCGS members and become familiar with new "tricks of the trade." Thanks to everyone who made it such a special evening.
