On Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM, the Little Italy Festival Organization in Clinton, IN, in collaboration with the Clinton Public Library and Wabash Valley Genealogy Society (WVGS) will be offering a Genealogy Hotspot.  The intent of this event is to provide the public with the opportunity to discuss genealogy questions or have pictures and other documents scanned with the assistance of members of the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society…all, for free.

Participants can sign up in advance for a thirty-minute session with a WVGS representative to discuss family genealogy questions or other family history issues.  These personal sessions will provide an opportunity for WVGS members to make suggestions, point out research options and provide counseling to participants on how they might proceed with their family history research. 

In addition, WVGS will also have several scanning equipment set-ups available.  This will afford the public the opportunity to digitize documents, photographs and other family memorabilia.  Individuals requesting assistance with scanning are instructed in advance to bring a flash drive with them for storage of their images. Permission slips will be available for those whose scanned materials might be uploaded to Wabash Valley Vision and Voices, an Indiana State University digital project.

Interested individuals need to sign-up in advance for a specific time slot for genealogy counseling and/or scanning.  Where applicable, this scheduling will allow pairing up  participants with specific areas of inquiry with the appropriate WVGS representatives.

This event is being jointly sponsored by LIFT (Little Italy Festival Town), the Clinton Public Library and WVGS.  This “first of its kind” event offers a unique opportunity to broaden the community’s awareness of WVGS while providing much needed assistance for budding genealogists.

The event and some materials are free for those who sign up at the Clinton Public Library prior to the event.  Walk-ins will be welcome, providing that space and time are available.  To sign up contact the Clinton Public Library at 765-832-8349 or www.clintonpl.lib.in.us
