Kilmer Library’s Genealogy Workshop Celebrates Women’s History March 20
The Susan Broom Kilmer Branch Library celebrates Women’s History Month with a special lecture presented by the Treasure Coast Genealogical Society (TCGS) on Tuesday, March 20 at 1:30 p.m.
Presented by TCGS President Carolyn Lancaster, “Two Forces to Reckon With: Sarah Josepha Hale and Brooke Schreier Ganz” will focus on two influential women. The former made history in the 19th Century as a writer, philanthropist and advocate, while the latter is making history now as an activist and advocate for open public access to archival records held by government agencies and libraries.
If you can’t get to this free lecture, members of the Treasure Coast Genealogical Society offer individual help three days a week: Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Genealogy Section on the second floor from 9 a.m. - noon. Learn to use Ancestry.com, Heritage Quest and more. More information is available at www.treasurecoastgenealogicalsociety.org.
These programs are free and open to the public. TCGS membership is not required.
