Genealogy and family history research continues to trend with the public, presenting an opportunity for historical societies and libraries. Librarians and Local Historians Day at the 2017 New England Regional Genealogical Conference in Springfield will feature Bob (Robert) Anderson, The Great Migration Study, as luncheon speaker. Curt Witcher of the Allen County Public Library will detail how genealogy can attract interest and funding for both groups. Rhonda Clark and Nicole Wedemeyer Miller’s book, Fostering Family History Services, includes ideas for how partnerships between the two communities of practice can benefit both. Rhonda will share their findings in person. Curt’s second presentation highlights cost-effective public domain resources for genealogical reference that don’t require a budget. Panelist Rachel Onuf, the roving archivist for Massachusetts, will talk about this Massachusetts program. Register at www.nergc.org: $40 for the day, 26 April 2017. Luncheon sponsored by ProQuest. Full conference registration not required.
