Let's Get Locked In
In several posts I have written about the genealogy discussion group at our local public library. After a recent meeting several of the members were chatting. During the conversation the idea for a genealogy lock-in surfaced.
On first blush it seemed like a crazy idea, but the following week something occurred causing us to revisit the possibility. I happened to read an article about a library out west having such an event. After sharing the link with our librarian she emailed back stating we are being locked-in!
The following links are from various libraries who have schedule genealogy lock-ins for their patrons.
Kalamazoo Public Library, Michigan
Longview Public Library, Texas
Massillon Public Library, Ohio
W. Dale Clark Library, Omaha, Nebraska
Plans are in motion for our inaugural event in late October. What a blast to spend the evening with fellow researchers. Want to be locked-in? Have any great ideas?
