Find that Book, Free, Online
Thompson will present the July program on how to find FREE digitized
history and genealogy books on the Internet. Many times in conducting
research, another researcher has listed a reference which you would like
to review—perhaps a local history published in the 1880s or a family
genealogy which was written in the early 1900s. This program will show
you how to find these resources plus others and search them online or
download them to your computer for future quick reference. Accessing
books on HeritageQuest will be discussed. Additionally, using
worldcat.org to find books in nearby libraries will be explained.
Each month the genealogy society presents
information that will help with your research. Support your local
society with your presence at meetings and with your annual membership.
The Nevada Library Genealogy Department is open to researchers during
all regular Library hours. Wi-fi is available if you bring your
personal device. Two computers in the Genealogy Dept. are
available exclusively for genealogy research. A $25 12-month
library card can be obtained at the circulation desk if you live outside
of Nevada, or a free limited guest pass can also be obtained.
