Laurel Library Celebrates Oct Family History month

A number of interesting History events are occurring at the Laurel Library in October;

On Oct 1 between 1:00 and 3:00 PM is a workshop called "Using Your Library Card to Explore Census Records." Most of Sussex County libraries has agreed to recognise any Sussex County Library card as valid at their library (Your Library Card is now a SUPERCARD) so you can use your Delmar Library card at Laurel.

October 8th Friday between 10 AM to 3:00 PM is "Sussex County Cousins" always a good event for genealogy since most native born area people are cousins this gives you a chance to share your family tree information with more distant relatives. It is put on by the Sussex County Genealogical Society. Very Possibly I will attend it again.

October 20th Wednesday at 6:30 PM is a workshop called "Cracking the Code: Understanding Colonial Handwriting and Documents."

October 26th at 6:30 Tuesday is a program called: "across the Tracks: Uncovering the history and Persistence of the African-American community in West Laurel." Maybe they will talk about Bacontown
