Always Dreamed of Spending the Night in a Research Library?

As a genealogist, one of your favorite places is a library. And, if you're researching West Virginia ancestors, there's no better place to research than the State Archives and History Library in Charleston. Now West Virginia's statewide genealogy and history organization, the Mining Your History Foundation, is working with the library to bring you another night of unlimited research in the library's microfilm, books, newspapers, maps, manuscripts, and more.

There will be no eating in the library, but there will be light refreshments, coffee and soft drinks in the "Back Room!"

Registration must be postmarked by March 17, 2005. Late registration, if space is available, will be $35.00.

Don't Think You Can Make It All Night?
