Family History Day

Genealogy is all about understanding the history of your family and the times they lived in. BCLS has a long history of involvement with this form of research – from helping to organize the first Burlington County Genealogy Club to preserving unique materials reflecting the history of our area. On Saturday, March 7, your library will be holding a celebration of genealogy and family history research with a keynote speaker and two afternoon sessions for attendees. Please join us for a great day of learning and review.
