The Genealogical Society of Vermont’s planned spring membership meeting to be held Bennington, cooperatively with Mt. Anthony Lodge #13, Masonic Societies of Bennington, has been canceled. In place of that meeting, GSV is offering our members a group visit to the Vermont Genealogy Library of the Vermont French-Canadian Genealogical Society.
The Vermont Genealogy Library, located at 377 Hegeman Ave. (across from the Vermont State Police) Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester, Vermont, will host a group visit of GSV on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. The library closes at 4:00 p.m. so there will be plenty of time to do research. The library has subscriptions to ancestry.com, findmypast.com, etc., and has 12 computers available to use.
GSV members will meet in the library’s classroom which can accommodate 40-50 people. Vermont French-Canadian Genealogical Society President, Sheila Morris will greet us and give a short presentation on what can be found in the library and ask which ethnic groups we are researching. Then volunteers will help each group find the corresponding part of the library for their research interests. The library has excellent resources for French-Canadian, English, Scottish, German and Irish research.
This visit is free of charge to GSV members, and lunch will be on your own.
Directions to the Vermont Genealogy Library are provided at the below link: http://www.vtgenlib.org/general/directions.php
