Genealogy for the Non-Genealogist Librarian April 2014

I’ve been asked to repeat my session from the Association of Small and Rural Libraries is “Genealogy for the Non-Genealogist Librarian”  at the North Central Library Symposium. Since I’m going to presenting again, I wanted to reshare the links for the handouts for it here. That first handout is a pathfinder that I just updated with resources to get anyone started in genealogy. The major change I’ve made from the last time I posted these links is the top link is the version of the handout I uploaded directly to WordPress. A couple of people had mentioned they had issues using the PDF system on my website (where the pathfinder is normally housed) so hopefully this will correct that. I hope you’ll find it easier, but the two links should open the same document. I’ve also added a link to a post I did of genealogy policies I collected from Iowa libraries. Thank you to everyone who participated.

I’ve used the same information to create a LibGuide.

This last handout is a resource for librarians who want to improve the service to genealogists in their library.
