New Spring series: Writing Workshop begins Wed. March 28

The Fiske Genealogical Foundation will be offering a Writing Workshop in the Spring of 2018. It will kick off with the regular class on Wednesday, March 28 at 10 A.M. in Pioneer Hall. Four more workshops will meet every two weeks on Tuesdays from one to three P.M. The dates are April 10th, 24th, and May 8th and 22nd. The fee for this series will be $20.

The first class on March 28 will focus on time lines and how to use them in writing to help you solve genealogical problems and organize your writing. Another part will start you off with a warm-up exercise in Free Writing. The four additional sessions will include consultations, group support sessions, practice and discussions on editing, copyright, organization, and style. Bring your problems. Join our group. We aim to support you, whatever level you consider yourself to be. ~ Karl Kumm & Karen Sipe

Notebooks Finding Aids now available online; for index click here.

The Fiske Notebooks were established as an original resource, part of the Library's traditional and strong interest in the preservation of information of genealogical interest. The Fiske Notebooks are uncatalogued, and there are no references to them in our online catalog. In them one will find copies of Arthur Fiske's genealogical research notes, records of births, marriages, and deaths, cemetery inventories, family group sheets, pamphlets, photo copies of articles, photo copies of excerpts from rare books, newsletters, ephemera, and more. The notebooks are classfied by geographic location and shelved with other items of the same class in the main collection.
