The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) is pleased to announce the March 2018 webinar, “Preserving Your Societies Historical and Genealogical Records,” presented by Melissa Barker.
Many genealogical societies are fortunate enough to be in a position to collect and house genealogical records. Most of the time, these records are donated to the society with the hopes they will be preserved for generations to come. It is important for genealogical societies to have the knowledge and techniques needed to archive and preserve the records in their care. This presentation will give your society the tools you need to preserve your records.
Melissa Barker is a Certified Archives Manager for the Houston County, Tennessee, Archives. She also lectures, teaches, and writes about researching in archives and records preservation. She writes her own blog and has written articles for several publications. She is affectionately known as The Archive Lady. She is also a Professional Genealogist that works with clients who are researching their Tennessee ancestors.
This webinar will be held on March 15, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. Central Time, and will be recorded for viewing on the FGS website shortly after its conclusion. Please register in advance.
NEXT TIME: In April, Dina Carson will present “1890 Census Replacement Project: Creating a Genealogically Relevant Project for Your Society.” Registration is already available; get this session on your calendar today.
