New Books in the Genealogy Library

I just cataloged and added 14 books, that had been donated over the summer/fall, into our Genealogy Library. Some of them look really good. Attached is a list of the newly added books: Genealogy New Books to the Library

Lost and Found

There are a few things that were left in the genealogy lab that I think people would like. One is a plastic bag of lovely black and white pictures. I am not an expert, but they look like Europe maybe from the late 40’s to early 60’s. I am sure that they are someone’s treasures and the person is very sad to have lost them.

The second item is a green water bottle, and the third item is a pair of sunglasses.

All items are on the desk in the Genealogy Lab. I hope they all get back to their owners.

Gifting Tree – How it works

Yesterday at the general meeting, we introduced the idea of the Gifting Tree. This was based on the board’s desire to defray costs as much as possible and a suggestion last spring from a member in a general meeting that members might want to donate a month of one of our new database subscriptions so we could keep them available longer. Please do not feel obligated to participate.

The Gifting Tree is in the club library, and will be brought to each General Meeting. This is how it works (and we are open to other better ideas if you have one):

  1. Next time you visit the club computer lab/library, or attend the next general meeting, take a paper ornament of your choice from below the gifting tree.
  2. Write your name and what you are supporting with your donation on the back of the ornament. (For example: Andrea Houston printer ink cartridge). You can choose from an idea on the list of Gifting Tree Ideas or create your own idea. You can choose to donate anonymously if you wish (you would just list the item supported by your donation for example: Batteries).
  3. Attach your ornament to the gifting tree.
  4. Payment can be given to a board member, to a monitor (who will put it in the treasurer’s drawer) or you can put the payment in the treasurer’s drawer or Andrea’s drawer in our computer lab. If you are donating an item (like batteries), you can place them under the gifting tree (like a present) and a board member will pick them up and distribute them to the right place.
  5. Thank you for your support of the Genealogy Club

Here is a list of ideas for the Gifting Tree. Gifting Tree Ideas
